my unpursued dream

I yearn to become an ACTOR!!!

in the past i took part in 4school play productions playin lead roles:
Street People- in 1993 playin innspector Okohobo a crooked corrupt cop
School's Out-1994 a Jamaican teacher with a massive afro
Trials of Brother Chume-1995 poor Chume
H.M.S Pinafore-1997 a musical where i played captain cochran

there is no greater feelin than being on stage being applauded(and booed) the fame..

I yearn to return on stage.if someone was to ask whats the best place to act tv, movie or theatre? THEATRE any day. that aspect of it being live,no space for mistakes or retakes....the audience being there as close as 2metres.... the adrenaline...just to die for!

and u know the best part in acting is not even the final production its the stages that u go thru...the means justifying the ends. the errors...rehearsals...personal jokes...memory lapses...

and thats why when i borrow a dvd i always wanna see the behind the scenes, the gags, spoofs and the makin of each scene...and no one likes that...if u was an actor believe me u would wanna know.

its such a joy! the whole experience!

get me a stage set me loose...free me on a stage... i wanna express myself....until then i shall remain on this stage called a page!!!!

But one day...i shall return to theatre!!!

Aren't you the guy who they threw shoes and hats at when he tried to act. Well a word of advice, I would think twice if I were you!

Ps: I didn't know you were into drama since I too was in drama both in High school and a little in college (best actor provincial awards but do I say).

i gotta agree. in fact ever since this post nicko has been missing.. so either he checked himself into mathare directly and saved us all the trouble, ama he tried to become an actor and the director checked him into mathare.. simple!
