“Storytelling, and being a part of a community that brings a story to life, takes many different skills, as well as compassion, creativity, and fortitude – and I learnt these things on and behind the stage.”
“I got involved in drama because my best friend started to take acting classes on Saturdays, and I did everything she did. We were 12. Then I fell in love with it, and the rest is history.”
“So, whatever you do, just give it a try. Find humour in things, say yes to things (as long as you’re not pressured and you’re comfortable with it). At the end of the day, life is all a performance anyway.”
Here we ask members of our community to reflect on their experience with youth drama and discuss how it has impacted their life and career.
