My One and Only Time On Stage

 So there I was, on stage in a theater packed with a thousand people, all eyes riveted on me as I stepped out onto the stage. I was terrified. Read about it (here).



  1. ha. i always tell people if i dont get a few butterflies i am probably not talking about the right thing..
    i take the stage quite often though...i enjoy it..good thing they caught the eye that might
    not have got as many applause...smiles.

  2. I don't think I ever had more than a hundred people (or maybe 50) watching me on stage. Luckily my school's stage made it real hard to see them while the play was going on.

  3. My wife and I are singer songwriters so we're on stage a good bit. The first time I was on stage was in my high school play. I had the leading male role, and it wasn't in the script but the director of the play heard me playing guitar a few weeks before the performance and asked if I'd consider playing a song in the play.
    I was sweating before the show, but once on stage, I just breathed and everything went great.
    Public speaking is on a lot of people's list of things they're terrified of.
