Theatre Nerds was born out of a desire to create a unified community of thespians, no matter what age, location, skill level, or goal. We love theatre, so lets connect with each other and share stories, laughs, resources, and general tomfoolery!
I have been addicted to the musical theatre since I was 6 after my father took me to see a performance of Hello Dolly in the West End. I went on to see performances of Charlie Girl, The King and I and, I think, South Pacific with him. All I can tell you is that I had Nellie Forbush’s part nailed by the time I was 7.
It’s an impossible decision to make, but I think Le Mis is my favourite musical of all time … closely followed by all the above, Billy Elliot, Blood Brothers (which I balled my eyes in the theatre three nights in a row with Linda Nolan as Mrs Johnstone), Joseph and Phantom of the Opera. The list is much loved and endless.
So I hesitated before posting a parody of Le Mis, believing that nobody has the right to take the micheal out of such a beautiful contribution to the musical theatre … but it really made me smile so I couldn’t help myself.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the thespians known as Theatre Nerds. Happy Friday!
