“I’ve done a lot of plays at the arts center and I used to get a little freaked out, but not too much anymore. I like the attention, and it’s a lot of fun.”

“Occasionally, but usually only in front of a really big crowd. I wouldn’t say that I’m nervous, it’s always a little nerve racking, but it’s more excitement than anything.”

“I did four or five years ago, but it’s definitely gone now. Most of it is just confidence, but it really helps to have a role that fits you.”

“No. I’ve been dancing and doing acting since I was 3. I’m sure I did when I was little, but probably didn’t know what it was. I just felt a little funny before I went on, but that passed quite awhile ago.”

“Sometimes I get nervous and excited at the same time, but it’s more excitement than fear. The only thing I’m afraid of is forgetting a line.”

“Not really anymore. I’ve been acting since kindergarten. Right before I go on my heart will race a bit, but that’s natural. Once I go out and see the crowd, it’s gone.”

“I do, but probably not for the same reason most people do. It’s not that there are a lot of people in the audience staring at me, it’s just that I want to perform well and not forget any lines.”

“Last year I did, because it was my first time, and I had kind of a big role for it being my first play. Not really anymore though.”

No, I have no fear of speaking in front of crowds.. Never did try the trick of picturing everyone nekked. Don't know if that would work or not...

no but i started laughing at a junior high musical when an aunt kept making faces at me and ended up falling off the stage. my folks were mad and it was embrassing but i look back at that aunt with great fondness. as for picturing people naked i have heard that as well but i have a vivid imagination and what was the percentage of overweight adults? i dont even like to picture myself naked lol.
