As to me, I did only once in my life. It was a one act play titled "Poetasters of Ispahan" in which I played the role of "Suleman the barber". It was the wonderful experience of my life. One that I can not forget in my life time. I remember those days when I used to do rehearsal for the play. So, what about you people? Have you acted on stage in any play? Please share your experience.

Only a few times at some school plays. I really don't like acting in a play that much but I like playing live music. I'd like to try acting in a movie or something, though.

yes, i remember during my high school days, we made noli me tangere and i played the role of maria clara, which happens to be the main female character... yes the experience is really fun and unforgettable, the rehearsals and all...and the nervousness we feel before the act and the victory after the success of it...

Nope I would have loved to have had the opportunity to act in a play, but I do have an uncle that was in a little film a long time ago, but I haven't had the chance to do any acting.

Yes I have done several plays. I acted in school and later did "community theater" where I used to live. I always loved it cause I could be a completely different person. When I was a kid I wanted to be on Broadway.

I did once and it was a disaster. I did not realize that I had to learn my lines. It was very embarrassing for me because I did not practice and just relied on the prompter. It's too late to go back now and do it right but I have learned my lesson well. Cheers!!

When I was around 8 or 9 I somehow became one of the Gingerbread Players, which was a local drama group in my town, during the summer and I performed in one play. I believe it was Jack and The Beanstalk. It was a loooong time ago but I do remember how much I enjoyed getting into character, the smell of the backstage area and even the smell of the stage makeup. My mother still has the clipping from the local newspaper that included a picture of us in costume and I remember the photographer telling "Jack" a couple of times to look scared of the giant.

Not actually a good actress here. ^_^ I would rather sing or dance than do some acting job. Usually, in plays in school, I will just help with the props, the music or even the lights but not included to those who will actually act on stage. I remember that I once played a role of somehow a warrior with a sword, I love that one. I didn't do some acting jobs there just a fight scene wherein we had a battle of swords. I just had to participate then for we lack in male casts, so I had to do it even if I'm a girl. ^_^
