THEATER WISDOM IN MY POCKET – By Jes DeGroot
I LOVE to collect musical theatre quotes. They inspire me. They lift my mood when I’m feeling down. And in quite moments, I ponder their underlying messages. My favorite is from the song “Astonishing,” heard in the musical theatre production of Little Women
“I may be small,
but I’ve got giant plans
to shine as brightly as the sun!”
Whenever I feel like a song I’m singing or a line I’m working has me beat, I read this quote , and it instantly changes my perspective. I pulled together some of my favorite quotes, and with a little help from a friend, put together a printable page of some of my favorites. I like the idea of cutting them up into cards and putting them where I need them most, like in a script I’m working on, in my Audition Book, on the mirror in my bedroom, and especially in a pocket of an audition outfit. It’s just a little something to help me keep my focus.
Here's the printable cards.
