A thread for all things Amateur Dramatics!
Local theatre group has given me the part of the head Dwarf in Snow White. I’m a little grumbly because I’m only in a couple of scenes compared with last year’s part where I was one of the main characters. The character is kind of flat because the dwarves main schtick is they all have names like Sorry, Who, Kidding etc. making it similar to that old baseball sketch but not as well written. But I’m making sure to take it in my stride. Quite a few people were upset with the part they got and I’m making sure that I’m not going to be a nuisance about it.
I think back to my childhood when one of my brother’s was in the nativity play at Christmas and was the inn keeper and he was only in that for one scene but he did the part so well for his age they put him in the local paper!
