Drama Club there’s an audition taking place in school, and you’re not sure if you want to join, maybe you need more reasons to make the first step. Let me give you a couple of good reasons that I hope will help you make the right decision. Being a part of the Drama Club is a good chance to learn a lot about theatre and art, about hard work and discipline, to face your fears and open new possibilities, but also to meet a lot of fun and creative people.
The most important reason to join the Drama Club should be your passion to do so, always listen to your heart.
It may be your first opportunity to perform in front of an audience, on stage. It’s a good way to try something new, to leave your comfort zone, and challenge yourself.
You may love that feeling of being on stage, and you might be good at performing and it could develop into something more than just a fun hobby.
You can be whoever you want to try your potential for transformation and learn something new about yourself through the roles you play. Creating your roles will help you search for the deeper parts in yourself, making a better relationship with your inner self, by following your emotions, and work against your insecurities.
Being in the Drama Club doesn’t always mean that you have to act, there are so many possibilities. You just have to try and to find what is best for you, to write, paint, to make scenography, costumography, you can create music, sing, dance, play an instrument. There are so many ways to express yourself in the theatre, but you need to work hard and learn to achieve your goals and have fun doing so.
You can set an example to others and show them that if you love something it is not as difficult, that it is possible, and inspire them to try something new, something that they might love, but were not brave enough to do it. If you inspire others that in itself will be a great reward that might make you happy and motivate you to continue.
But best of all, you are a part of an ensemble, part of the creative process, of something that is really important. You could form meaningful and deep relationships with your Drama Club mates, sometimes creating lasting bonds, and work with a teacher who has an unusual and unorthodox teaching method to bring out the best in you.
You can have great fun and unforgettable experiences in celebration of your successful performances because the Drama Club is composed of creative and compassionate people that are full of positive and creative energy. You will have to work hard, but also have lots of fun, enjoy every moment and feel satisfied. There is nothing to lose, you can be richer from another great life experience, which will make you a better person in a different way. I hope this inspired you and gave you enough reasons to consider joining the Drama Club!
