First night nerves? No way!

My first shift at New Theatre went sooooooooo well. All the staff are lovely and friendly, great to meet the other volunteers too. I had the job of taking tickets and then watching Seven Brides For Seven Brothers from start to finish! I totally forgot I was working and ended up singing and clapping along haha. Before I knew it, my night was over. It's strange I felt so scared going in but really it was easy, it took my mind off things. I do have a killer cold and pulled my calf muscle but nothing can take last night away from me now.

Sounds like this is going to really help you & your confidence :)

WhyWhy7 - The audience was older people who told me they can't use phones. Shame really me and my torch were ready to tell people off haha. mimii it was brilliant to be able to work in a older theatre and gain new skills too. This will help my confidence :)
