I recently found some photos from my very first drama camp. So, going back a little over three years ago, let me tell you a little bit about The Basket of Flowers.
I was 11 at the time and was quite nervous but, at the same time, very excited. I was cast as a walk on, which is a silent part, and litterally all I did was walk on and off stage. Despite how boring it sounds, I loved this role. As a walk on I was able to participate in the performance but not have to worry about memorizing lines. As I told my friends many times afterwards, “I had so much fun I fogot I even had a role!”
I appeared on stage twice: The trial scene and when I gave the father and Mary each a bowl of soup in exchange for the work they were doing in my garden. Actually, I appeaered three times, if you count curtain call.
