One fifth grade girl was terrified. She enjoyed the rehearsals, but was so scared of the idea of an audience that she asked for a very very small part. Even at dress rehearsal she asked with pleading eyes if she could drop out. I convinced her to just do the first of the three scheduled performances, and decide after that one. She ran up to me after the final curtain of the first performance, beaming. “Mrs. Ramirez, Mrs. Ramirez, Guess what?! I did it! And it was fun! And I never have to be afraid of that again!” She is currently getting ready to audition for her third musical, and I’ve heard that she is hoping for the lead.
