Who Did Theater in High-School?

Oh yeah, I did theater all through out my childhood and high school- I was very very hyper and wanted lots of attention so my stepmother put me in all these kiddie acting classes and took me to all these community theatre auditions.

Like regional/community theatre wise, I was in the Sound of the Music (twice! lol- once as Marta and once as Brigitta), The Music Man as Amaryllis, Little Louise in Gypsy, Kim in Bye Bye Birdie, and a few more, but those were the big ones.

At school, I was Magnolia in Showboat, Lilli/Kate in Kiss Me Kate, Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, and Charlotte in A Little Night Music.

In university, I was Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire.

When I was really young (like six or seven), I would sing Maybe from Annie (such a cliche I know) because it was the only musical song I knew and the only musical I had ever seen (we had the VHS tape of the movie version with Bernadette Peters and Carol Burnett) besides Les Miserables (I was like five and fall asleep) and Evita. Then when I got older I would either sing Can't Help Lovin Dat Man from Showboat or Goodnight My Someone from The Music Man because those were the only Broadway shows I'd ever seen (other than Chicago and Ragtime) and I had the CDs so I knew all the words (incidentally the same woman who played Magnolia in Showboat when I saw it played Marian in The Music Man when I saw it too).

My father would buy me all the cast recordings and the tapes of the movie versions and I would walk around singing the songs from them and I would try to get my siblings to act out scenes with me. I remember when I was in like year 3, climbing on top of a desk during class and singing Rainbow High from Evita lol (my classmates loved it; the teacher did not).

    • Insulin amendments to the bill: (compiled from various tweets and articles) Senate voted on Kennedy's amendment – he said he will "re-implement a rule Biden repealed to make insulin available at community health care centers."  Would pay for it by redirecting money away from Obamacare. Murray said Rs should support the insulin price cap instead. (This Kennedy amendment was essentially a bid to show Republican support for addressing the cost of insulin, though Democrats opposed it as insufficient. It came right before Republicans were expected to strip out the Democratic-authored insulin proposal in the bill for violating Senate rules on budget reconciliation.) Kennedy amendment did not pass. Republicans challenged the $35 cap on insulin prices for the private marketplace, as a violation of the strict budget rules governing passage of this bill.  The $35 cap on insulin prices for private insurers is officially out of the bill.  Seven Republicans voted with Democrats to keep the cap for private insurers in the bill, 57-43, insulin price cap for private market is stricken from the bill  (needed 60 to survive). 7 Rs voted to keep it in the bill: Cassidy, Collins, Hawley, Hyde Smith, Kennedy, Murkowski, & Sullivan The cap on price of insulin for those on Medicare is still in the bill. That part was ruled to comply with reconciliation rules. Summary: The $35.00 cap on insulin for private insurers was stricken from the bill. The $35.00 cap on insulin for Medicare patients remains in the bill. Senate Finance chair @RonWyden gives out this statement: “Republicans have just gone on the record in favor of expensive insulin. After years of tough talk about taking on insulin makers, Republicans have once against wilted in the face of heat from Big Pharma”.
    • He looks good. When was this? He doesn't have a bad voice. I'm glad he quit Dynasty over the fact that Steven wasn't gay enough.
    • And all were gone not long after Moonves became fully ascendant at CBS. (Though I'm not counting The Nanny.) Yes, Moonves was looking for success. He also had a clear focus on undoing a female-centric image at the network. i'm not going to rehash the entire discussion many of us had about CBS history while I'm recovering from COVID, lol. You can look it up yourself in that thread. It's not hard to search those names in there.
    • The hair definitely 'elevates' this to Big Fat Gypsy Wedding levels. Tiara? You are too modest. It's a motherfucking steelworks up in that birds nest. We knew it would be blingy. We knew it would be Baroque. Teresa lives to overshadow other people. This event is probably the biggest thing northern New Jersey has seen in a LONG time. But the whole thing also looks like it might be a lot of fun to attend? And she definitely understands the assignment in terms of leaking a few insane pics and inviting all these RHs who are going to leak too. This is wonderful marketing for the next season of NJ plus the wedding special.  I wonder if the special will show if Ramona was uninvited, and why Dina refused to attend.
