What I learned in Theater

Ok, so the only reason I joined theater class was because I needed an easy A.A blow-off class of some sort, to balance out the rest of my schedule.I got much more than that.I am taking with me a sense of self-worth, and confidence.I acquired the ability to think on my feet, and the motivation to get up and do something when faced with a new situation, not just giggle and turn red.
