This, being my first play with Sweet Tea, I didn’t know exactly what to expect, but so far it has been a very rewarding experience. I’ve met some interesting and nice people and I’m learning a lot. I’m also being challenged in many different ways. This is the first time I’ll have an audience on more than one side of me. I’ll have to put in that extra effort to make sure that I give everyone around me equal attention while still giving my character purpose to do so. This is also, the first time I’ve had to perform musical numbers. Singing is hard for me but I love doing it and I keep trying to improve. There are a lot of things I’ve had to get used to. Sweet Tea Shakespeare is hard work. We are entertaining our guests from the time they walk through the door and even during intermission. I feel like no one involved an STS production has a small part.
