Another version of get to know you. We are all friends here and therefore have no shame I think it would be funny to share our most embarrassing moments.
Ok, here is mine to start with.
I was acting in a one-act play in high school and we decided to take it to our state one- act competition. It was a very abstract piece about a boy with autism. His parents kept taking him to doctors and trying to figure out how to fix him, but in the end they just need to let him ne who he is. The play is seen from the child's point of view. It was a very powerful piece and was not done in a literal way (the dialogue was full of Dr. Suess type rhymes, chanting, etc.- the staging was also done with large blocks) basically it was non- realistic. This is important to emphasize the magnitude of the embarrassment.
So we get through the first day of competition with flying colors and do very well (one of the judges was a director of mine from community theater, so maybe that had something to do with it). The part I was playing was a doctor and then a classmate of the little boy. The second day of competition was not so good. One of the judges comes in and talks with you after you perform. So the judge the second day was a theatre student from ASU. Very um, well, a word I can't use here. She directs a question to the cast "how old is the child suppossed to be?" we tell her, about 8 since they are in third grade. And she says (in front of like 10 people, most of them male) "yeah I found it really hard to believe that someone with bigger breasts than me could be 8" This is completely directed at me. Keep in mind that I am 17 and the other actor playing an 8 year old was 6'2" 250 pounds. He is believable, but I am not. I was speechless. It was one of those moments you run over again and again in your head and each time you have something cool and evil to say to the person. I just cried when she left and everyone was too shocked to confront her.
Now I am no Dolly Parton, but to have it pointed out like that. It was horrible. We didn't even place in the competion and the stupidest play I have ever seen won. All because of some female penis envy.
Ok, so lets hear it. It will be cathartic.
