My sister's dog was in Oliver at her high school. I was in the chorus of Annie Get your gun and did props and make-up for that play, The Wizard of Oz and Mame. I decided I liked behind the scenes much better (also might have had something to do with me not having much talent acting or singing )!

I would never try out for a part, I was always in the chorus. Believe it or not, I was horribly shy when I was young.

By High School I was doing lighting and props. Keep me out of the limelight. I still have a hard time in front of a group. I'm don't even like speaking up in morning meetings.

Competition was fierce at our high school. My HS choir director told me I would play Eliza Doolittle the following year, however, my singing was/is marginal at best. He cast a girl with a much better singing voice. I did get some lead parts in college, nonsinging.

LP, did your sister's dog look like Bullseye?

I LOVE musicals also but have a special place in my heart for Brigadoon

Just reading that brought back good memories of watching it with my mom! That is one of my favorites as well. Another that brings back special memories of watching with her is "Carousel."

We watched "Argo" last night and I have to admit I was a little disappointed. After hearing all the Best Picture Oscar buzz, I was expecting something more. I personally thought "Lincoln" was much better.
