I was talking to a very old pal (a very swishy old pal I used to take tap-dancing lessons with, but didn’t realize he was gay until years later). We were reminiscing about our high school and college theater days. I had so much damn fun doing musicals and plays, and in fact, became a theater major in college before taking up archaeology. We were so geeky. Watched a bazillion old musicals, did summer stock. Retro (30s and 40s) stuff was all the rage when I was in high school.
I never got a leading role. I could sing just a bit, could dance up a storm. That singing thing really kicked my butt though. Oh well, I was in:
The King and I
Stop the World, I Want to Get Off
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
Guys and Dolls
What did you do in high school? Were you the popular cheerleader or the theater geek? Chess club or all-night clubbing?
