Remember all my bitching about theatre prior to getting into the play? Well… now i’m not only in the mainstage show, i wound up registering for an acting class yesterday. It would feel like a waste of academic time to me if i had to give up something else to do it, but i hadn’t been able to find any other class for that timeslot. In the end, i’m not really much of an actor. What i am is someone who is willing to get up and try something no matter how dumb it might seem. That one facet of my personality apparently more than makes up for my lack of actual acting, because time and again i’ve been willing to get up in front of an audience to trying something that some other actors weren’t even willing to do. Of course, that leaves me with a lot more in common with Tom Green than the cast of SNL, but i do have an interest (somewhere) to be able to really create a character out of thin air. I can’t do it now… i don’t have character voices or gestures or anything… i tend to just do it with inflection and dramatic pauses. So, maybe i’m ready to head into radio drama. Or, maybe i’m really going to learn something from this class. We’ll see.
