With January quickly coming to a close, I have to admit, some of my New Year’s Resolutions have not been turning out quite as planned. Let me be honest- I haven’t exactly finished two novels in the first month of 2018, however, I decided that I could focus on other goals, such as those related to theatre. I’m absolutely elated to share my 2018 Theatre Resolutions with you, and I hope that maybe you’ll get some inspiration, or comment some of your own resolutions for 2018 below!
1. Stage-Manage At Least One Show
I love working behind the scenes volunteering at a local community theatre, but I have yet to take on the lead role of being a stage manager. I think that this would be a great learning experience and I am definitely ready to dive into the realm of technical theatre.
2. Find a Go-To Audition Monologue
Each time I go to an audition, I seem to have an endless list of songs that I am ready to sing, but no monologue! This year, I’d like to find a spectacular monologue that I can bring with me to every audition.
3. Invest More Time in Dance Lessons
Even though I already take ballet, I think that it would benefit me greatly this year to put more time and effort into my dance classes. Not only will it help me improve my dance skills for shows, but it is a great way to exercise while having fun at the same time!
4. Take a Leap and Try a Straight Play
I haven’t done a straight play in years. In 2018, I want to push myself out of my comfort zone again and grow in my acting abilities.
5. Host a Tony Awards Viewing Party
I have to admit, the majority of my theatre friends and I always watch the annual Tony Awards, but we’ve never watched them all together! How fun would it be to be the friend that gets to host this star-studded night?
There you have it, 5 of my Theatre Resolutions! I think that 2018 is going to prove to be a wonderful theatre season that has many opportunities. One of those opportunities is attending a Camp Broadway camp this summer! I went to Camp Broadway Tempe in 2016 and it was my favorite week of the summer, by far. I strongly encourage you all to give one of CB’s programs a try this summer! Thank you for reading, and comment your resolutions below!
