Write a humorous description of your experiences on stage**

I was such a superstar on stage during my school years!

When I was eight, I was in my school production, ‘The Lost Chord’. It was really fun, every single student and teacher were involved and rehearsals went for weeks. My performance was with my fellow year 2 students and our performance was ‘Cats’. Everyone looked the same but I was the best looking female cat in my year.

Two years later, I was in a dance number with ten girls in my year for a performance at our school’s presentation night. The presentation night is the most important school event of the year and I was on stage. I rocked that night, although I wasn’t centre stage, I was two from the left.

Although those two performance stand out to me the most, I was a star in countless primary school performances!

In high school, I became a superstar in year 8, I was so good at singing that I got requests! I auditioned for the high school musical, ‘Fantasie’, that same year. I sang my heart out with Tina Arena’s ‘Sixteen Years’. I ended up in a choir singing two songs, but I was still awesome!

Although my school performance superstar days are over and I know I wasn’t centre stage, I will always be awesome on stage!
