Every Theater Kid Has A Moment That’s So Mortifying It Leaves A Mental Scar, What’s Yours?
It’s all fun and games until someone forgets their lines.
The theater is a breeding ground for horrifying moments. You have to remember lines, stage direction, choreography, and sometimes musical harmonies. It only makes sense that you embarrass yourself on the regular. However, sometimes there are moments that are more than embarrassing, they’re completely and utterly mortifying.
Maybe you pulled a Pitch Perfect and projectile vomited onto the entire front row in the audience because of stage fright.
Or, perhaps as you were being hoisted in the air, to sing the final note in “Defying Gravity”, when your food poisoning kicked in and you pooped your pants. The whole audience sat in horror while liquid shit fell from above.
Or, maybe you were giving a monologue during The Vagina Monologues and you fell down the stage steps while carrying a tray of vagina cookies. Then, your dad ran down the aisle to check on you, but the only thing hurting was your pride.
