When you spend more time in your drama and choir classrooms than you do at home.
and when, "I can't, I have rehearsal", is the most over-used phrase in your vocabulary.

- you just spent $60 on bootlegs (Yes, I'm a bad person, lol)
- you basically peed in your pants when you saw the three theatre related books you've been searching for at borders. Then panic because you don't have enough money
- you check what auditions are up for the community theatres around you, but you know you cant audition anyway because you don't want to bother your mom about money.
- your brother got you a gigantic 'textbook' like Broadway book that he already knew you'll like
- You started watching Ugly Betty because you found out they referenced hairspray
- you laugh harder than usual at family guy when they make a musical reference
- you jumped when you saw Kristin in Four Xmases bc u didn't know she was there. Then your mom turns to you and says "I thought you wanted to watch this movie bc she's in it". Then you sit there wondering how you completely miss that
- your drama but not-as-into-theatre-friends ask you about a play they're curious about
- you find yourself doing "Over the Moon" from RENT in the shower.

-Everytime you go to Barnes and Noble you go straight to the cd section and listen to all the cast recordings deciding which ones you're getting and which ones you're sadly putting back, waiting to get when you have more money
-Once you've looked at the cast recordings you go to the theatre book section to look at monologue books
-You love to go to other shows with theatre friends and critique everything: actors,costumes, sets, everything
-Cast parties are better than birthday parties
-You and your theatre friends pre-cast the how before the list goes up, your usually right about most of them

-In the summer when everyone is relaxing you are loading up your schedule with as much as possible, dance classes, voice lessons, plays
-Your movie collection is practicall all musicals
-All celebrity crushes you've had have been on Broadway actors
-When you see a Broadway actor in a movie you scream and jump up and down and people look at you like your a freak
-Pretty much every facebook group your in has something to do with theatre

Also, when you watch said "musicals" (or whatever you wish to call them), you compare every single little detail between the movie rendition and the original stage production. Right down to the difference in costumes.

Current Role: Violet, "You''re A Good Man Charlie Brown"
Recent Roles: ASM, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever; Grandma Georgina, Willy Wonka
Upcoming Auditions: Gypsy
