Musical Theatre and Connecting
Musical Theatre allows you to be present with your emotions. Usually in every day life, you are not allowed to show everything that you are feeling and thinking. When you are performing, however, you show the reactions, thoughts, and feelings of your character right away. There can be no hiding how you are feeling. If you do try to hide your emotions or do not display them well, it could stop you from being able to communicate in an effective way. When you decide to take part in Musical Theatre, you are opening yourself and your world up to a new experience. The connection that comes from this experience could be life changing!
