Theater arts is one of many things I am passionate about. When I was in high school, I decided to get involved in theater. At first, I just wanted to be behind the scenes, working on the props crew or making costumes. But then, I got the itch. I tried out for the musicals and stage shows. My friends and I would play improvisational games to entertain each other. Even though I never made it on the main stage, I was a member of the lobby cast and took a theater class. By senior year, I was the leader of the lobby cast and had established that I was really good at performing.
A few weeks ago, one of my theater buddies "liked" a challenge on Facebook. It caught my interest and I went onto the page to see what the challenge entailed. Not even an hour later, I had a list of all the musicals (and musical movies) I had ever seen, ready to apply several of them toward these challenges. Many of those musicals will be featured and some will show up more than once (but with different songs). Get ready for some powerful songs, some visually stimulating images, and a few surprises!
