This is a question On the stage

Too shy to ever appear on stage myself, I still hung around theatres like a bad smell when I was younger - lighting and set design were what I was good at.

Backstage we'd attempt to sabotage every production - us lighting geeks would wind up the sound man by putting the remote "pause" button for his reel-to-reel tape machine on his chair, so when he sat down it'd start running, ruining his cues. Actors would do scenes out of order to make our lives hell. It was great and I don't know why I don't still do it.

Tell us your stories of life on the stage.

Cinderella
I was in a Cinderella spoof play. All the other guys where trying out for the role as prince. I tried out for the role of one of the ugly step sisters. I got the part.
I found a pink dress in the school's lost-and-found box, and made that part of my costume because it fit so well. I bought a red wig and put small balloons to be my breasts. I looked ugly as hell.
The day of the play came, and I dressed up as the sister, and went up on stage. The play was terrible, except for my performance of course. I got the only laughs and people where cheering for me. Someone even wanted my phone number...that stupid ass.
Would I dress up as a filthy ugly sister with balloon tits again? Probably.
