The Big Show
Every spring, high school boys put on variety show. Musical with a little comedy. When I was 10, an older boy thought it would be good for me to be the singer. I jumped at the chance. I always wanted to be on stage. I performed two numbers. We rehearsed all evening every day. I was anxious as the show came nearer. I was looking forward to the show. I sang my 2 songs and was overwhelmed and scared by the exuberant applause. After the show I found my parents were in attendance and they loved my performance. This was one of my favorite childhood memories.
