My name is Alex. I have been performing with Drama People for the past four years. I have played many roles both lead and supporting. I have had so many amazing experiences being up on the stage. However, last semester I had the privilege to work backstage. It was something I will never forget! Drama People finds pride in the fact of our performances are student run. Although it was stressful to think that if I forgot to move a log two inches to the right during a scene change the main actor might trip and fall on his face during a dramatic monologue, I still loved being backstage! I enjoyed the process of putting a show together and thinking on the spot to work out the many kinks you might run into.
(Did I mention this was student run.) Drama peoples has helped me to understand the importance and magnificent ability to take an audience into a whole other world and make them feel something they didn't before they walk into the theater. Along with with learning how to lead backstage and work with my fellow peers to generate a well-done show.
