As shoestring as it was, the stage at New Jersey's Wildwood High School was where a big part of where my passion for the arts was born. And I'm guessing many readers of this blog had similar experiences.
So share. And not just those of you who continued your theater careers. Tell us a little of the triumphs and disasters of your high school shows. Who did you play? Or were you backstage? What did you take with you?
Also, I'm very interested in the high school roles played by your bosses. Don't be shy. Ask your CEO or company president if he or she had a part in a high school show. If we get enough response, maybe a photo shoot will be in order.
*For the record, I was stage crew for "Sweet Charity," Jonathan, the ugly brother, in "Aresenic and Old Lace," the Captain in "Mr. Roberts," Pepe and the voice of both Maria's father and mother in "West Side Story," and both Kenickie and Sonny in "Grease" (long story).
