The Theatre…

I’ve always seen going to the theatre as a magical experience. There’s just so much it offers, in comparison to watching a film. I mean for starters there’s the environment. The uniqueness of the theatre building’s. The Victorian architecture; leaving the thought in the back of your mind about all of the generations that have sat there before you, seeing possibly the same production, with just a different cast and a few tweaks here and there and a modernised set.

Not only that but I think the theatre as a whole has such an amazing ability to create a community out of people, you’d never expect to be together. The different ages, backgrounds, everything…all these people brought together for one purpose, that being to see this particular show. The jumbled voices of everyone speaking before the show begins, then as soon as the light drops the audience almost in unison comes to a silence eagerly awaiting the start of the introduction music. I just think it’s incredible.

The whole atmosphere of the theatre during the show, leaves me speechless. Everyone’s undivided attention due to everyone respecting the no phones request of the staff. The dramatic build up of applause at the end of each scene. The feeling of showing so much appreciation to the whole cast and everyone who takes part to make the production what it is. I really think it’s nice to be able to go to the theatre even if it’s not very often. Just to see the comparison of how we kind of lose ourselves not only in technology but just in the world. If people showed that kind of appreciation everyday to people just doing everyday things…it’d definitely make everyone’s day a bit nicer.

Even just talking about it makes me love it even more…I guess that’s why I wanted to go into theatre myself…the passion’s still there it seems. ❤️

What I miss…

Like most university students I moved away from home. This was after I stayed at home and travelled for the first year, and then decided it wasn’t for me. But for the two years that I lived in Sheffield, I honestly loved it. I loved having my own space, with my own freedom to do whatever I wanted no matter what time it was. I mean don’t get me wrong, I did miss seeing my family everyday…but I had so much more independence. I can even say I enjoyed being able to do my own washing…how weird is that?

I even fell in love with Sheffield itself. It had so much to offer than my hometown. Better jobs, better atmosphere, better theatres, everything. In a way because I’ve returned home now, I yearn for this freedom I had never experienced before going to university. I’d love to move out again no matter where I moved to…but it’s a bit hard when you’re attempting to save for other things like travelling, not to mention having to fix a broken car. In some ways I feel like my life’s on hold a bit…but sacrifices must be made I guess.
