I have been involved in amateur theatre for approximately 14 years working back stage as well as on stage. Each production is unique and brings with it challenges that you know must be overcome to produce the show that audiences see.
Overcoming those challenges is the addictive part of theatre, and audience applause is the reward.
I have found this role very different to any other role I have played, particularly regarding the challenges in learning long sections of dialogue and not interacting with anyone else on stage. This will make more sense to you after you have seen the show which I hope you will enjoy
