How to Overcome Stage Fright  By Grey Pratt, Customer Service Rep, Pioneer Drama Service 

It’s almost time for your big entrance.  Your palms are sweaty, your knees are trembling, and your mouth is dry.  You’re hoping beyond hope that your performance is over soon.  We all know this feeling.  Almost everyone has stage fright to a certain degree — that shock of fear that triggers the production of adrenaline, which ensures that you get those feelings of stress and excitement.  A little bit of this tension is good because it helps you stay focused and energized.  But too much can take away from the fun in your performance.

Even world-renowned, award-winning performers regularly experience stage fright.  Helen Mirren once confessed, “I still suffer terribly from stage fright.  I get sick with fear.  Not every night, but at the beginning and on occasion — not necessarily when I’m expecting it.  You just have to cope with it — take it on the chin and work through it, trying to use the adrenalin to perform.”

You know that instance when you’re standing onstage and you have that feeling of tension?  When it comes down to it, it’s a logical feeling and actually very good!  Embrace it!  Because of that tension, your performance can peak!  Everyone has that feeling, even if they’ve been there a thousand times before.  So don’t worry about it.  Use the energy to feel alive...  you are a performer.
