  • Many times. I am a singer, and love it. I've sing in concerts; assemblies in high school, and in a lot of churches. I also got the chance to go to "All State"; it was fun; it was about a 350 voice choir. I primarily sing in church, and have had oppurtunities to be a part of CDs. I will continue to do this, and hopefully go somewhere as long as I don't let anything get in my way.

  • I have done a few local shows where I used to live through the community college and then the theatre guild I belonged to. I've always seemed to be parts that are much older than I am. (ie. been 18 at the time and played a 40, 50, 60 year old)
  • Many times. Mainly at church functions; also at school assemblies, and competitions. Also, I've played parts in plays. My favorite play that I sang in was called, "Gold". It was written by a pastor in Seattle, Wa. It had to do with a widow; a drunk homeless person; person strung out on drugs, etc. This play had a very good message behind it, and touched a lot of peoples lives.
  • I've done many chorus performances and also 4 voice recitals.
  • Definately. I was a musician for a while before attempting acting, so I had my share of performances. I then tried out for my school's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream...and then it all began. /nostalgia.
  • Yes. I love acting and I am always in the shows at my High School. Midsummer Night's Dream, Aida, and soon to be City of Angels... should be lots of fun.

  • Yes alot
  • Yes. I was in a few plays that we were required to participate in when I was in elementary school, middle school band concerts, and high school band concerts. I never liked being on stage in front of people though.
  • sooo many times and I've had quite an array of roles. My father and I were both cast in the same play once. It was a comedy called "Flaming Idiots". My dad's character had the hots for mine. That was fun to try to explain to friends. I've also played several male roles including Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit". We tried to wrap up my chest the best we could but I know at least one poor kid couldn't figure out why Bilbo had boobs.

  • A few times,didnt like it though.
  • I toured with few bands, playing few different instruments.
  • Yes, many times acting. A few other times playing with my high school jazz band
  • Yes ... professionally for over 35+ years! This period of my life taught me very, very much about 'the human condition!' In this sense and form, there are no 'bad' characters per se, just people--usually unknown to them on a conscious level --who 'function' from very poor psychological or physical reasons. Indeed, actors 'act' BEHAVIORS' and do not perform through using 'just the words.' No professional actor would say, 'HEY! This guy is evil! I can't 'play' that!' They, in their Craft would search for not only the justification for this character's 'awful' behavior, but would also create balance with the characters 'soft sides.' This is accomplished with at least one moment [of the character's portrayer] of humanity and/or 'weakness.' EVERYONE has something 'good' in them, no kidding! Makes for dynamic and 'identifiable' human beings and a better story for not just the actors involved, but for the overall audience experience! As for the written word: for the most part scripts are thoughtfully and meticulously created by writers whether for stage, film, television or commercials. One thing that makes performance art truly wonderful is that it relies completely on a cooperative environment. No one person is 'key.' All come together -- writer, director, producer, actor, stage hands, the theater itself AND the audience -- to generate a meaningful 'product' and experience! My question to you would be, "Why did you post this question?" Are you desiring to get on stage yourself? Or, was posing your question just out of curiosity? I'd like to know ... really!
  • I have been performing on stage since I was twelve years old I am now 28...I am blessed to have been given the ability and the opportunity to do so. I grew up surrounded by artists in my family and it seemed only natural that I would gravitate towards it. performing on stage at such a young age gave me so much confidence and self esteem to move right through those akward teen years where you are so aware you are inside your skin in a breeze. this why I think the arts are so important in our communities. I don't believe that every person needs to perform on stage but I do think that every young person should be given the freedom to express themselves in whatever medium they choose whether its music, dance, theatre, visual arts, film, etc... we all have a story to tell and if we aren't telling our own stories then who will?
  • Yeah. I'd hardly count it though. It was for a class and I only did a couple scenes. I should probably refrain from acting is what I learned.

  • Yes. I took ballet when I was 7 or 8, and I performed with them. I was in the drama club in high school, so I was on stage for 3 or 4 different plays. I played the piano for years and had many recitals in which I played on stage. I played in the school band from 5th grade (age 10) until I finished at the junior college (about age 22) and performed with concert, marching, and jazz bands many times a year. (The marching bands were not on stage, but the other two were) I played in the orchestra pit for a local theater group - and was on stage once for that, but usually found myself under the stage in the pit. I think that's about it.
  • In school, yes. I was in choir and was in a play. But out of school, what I have done is create background scenery and make costuming. That is where my true art lies.
  • Yes, when I was a child. I loved it, but I didn't pursue it because I was too busy learning other life lessons, (which taught me in the long run to be a better person and I have no regrets about it)
  • Yep. My band toured the local area for quite a few years before breaking up. I almost miss those days...almost.
  • Yes. I have acted on plays. Ive done tons of concerts. But mostly plays. Kindergarten through high school calls me the actress. My first main role was in kinder 2. i did as the smart third pig in the three pigs and the big bad wolf. im in six grade now, and have participated in more than 30 plays, 10 in which i have been the main character.
  • Yes several times.
  • Once...when little girl I sang a song..
  • Yes, I've performed on stage. I had a scholarship in Theatre and performed on Main Stage in many productions. I also performed as a vocalist.
  • Yes, it's been a while, but I've been thinking of returning to the stage. It's fun to pretend you are someone else.
  • In a public school Christmas play... :-)
  • Yes, as a professional, a student, and an amateur. There were some years in my life when I spent more time onstage than off. Then someone convinced me that short women with a few extra pounds just couldn't work in theater, and I tried to find something else to do for about a decade. That didn't work out, so now I'm hoping to go back to it.
  • Yup, many times.
  • yea and it was AWESOME because I am so shy and it was a very COOL experience being on stage...i also like to make my own little videos with just me more friends too.
  • Many,many times. I was in a band. I was did theater for a few months also.
  • all the time. I'm a musician and play a few times a week. I'm going on tour in June. I was onstage last night! That's why I'm tired today and doing nothing more than sitting in front of the computer and watching some tv.
  • Yup yup yup! Quite often too!
  • Very much so. I made once a big fool of myself while intoxicated.
  • Yes. Two friends of mine and I performed in our school's talent show last February. We wrote our own composition and we actually won first place. It was cool. I have a video of it but the quality isn't that great. (I'm all the way on the left)
  • Yes, long ago.
  • yes im 13 and been in lots of shows at school and out of school
  • Yes, I've done some theater. I've also done a little on-camera work and it's nothing compared to how great live theater is. With being on stage, you get the audiences' response right away and you can feed off the energy. What a rush!
  • Yeah. You could say that.
  • if i think my bedroom is an audience of one then yes, if it is an audience of two i really perform. i cant wait to be on a bigger stage but i will
