Auditioning for Spotlites Youth Theatre plays, by Jamie, aged 13.

“I think that people should audition shows because they get experience and possibly parts. Getting parts isn’t all that easy, first you either have to learn lines of a chosen character or have to act like the character. Rachel, our Director, has to decide what parts to give people.

In my past when I did Romeo and Juliet we had to learn 10 lines of Shakespeare for two characters and I get a chorus part but then a while later I got a phone call saying I got ‘Balthasar’ Romeo’s page. I learn my lines and it was really quite easy. I even had a rehearsal on my birthday ‘best birthday ever!’. The shows were put on downstairs in the Studio, it was different for a change.

For other shows like ‘Danny Champion of the World’ which was my first show I was terrified of being on stage but the first night is always scary, when it was my turn to go on stage I went on and I went from stiff and scared to relaxed. I got the hang of it. Nowadays I am only slightly nervous of going on stage”
