Today I am on a high after performing a comic monologue at the village hall variety show.
I admit I was very nervous as I haven’t performed for several years and even then I haven’t really done anything like that before; I am usually part of an ensemble cast.
The monologue was adapted from a piece written by Katy Wix from this book. I rewrote it slightly and added a couple of my own lines that I thought were funny. I performed it as a one sided telephone conversation.
I was terrified of dying on my feet but when I heard the first laugh it was like an electric shock! The best bit was that my lines got the biggest laughs…WOOP!
Today I am feeling very positive about the panto!!
