Today was the big day, tonight I would become a star, we were becoming Living, breathing objects like a candlestick, a clock and some may even be a beast or a beauty. Today we were performing Beauty and the Beast in front of a Cheerful crowd of friends and family. I was Maurice Belle the beauty's dad. My heart was beating like a drum I step onto the stage as the colourful lights beam down on me, I take a deep breath and calm myself I get into character and speak to belle and the crowd. The show was amazing at the end we all walked on stage and waved, I spot my whole inteir family cheering at me with their hearts content. I blush with excitement and embarrassment and hope off the stage and walk out the front door with the rest of relieved and excited Showtime.
