Take it from a former college theatre geek, your school stage will most likely be the best and last stage you'll ever be on.
After graduation, it’s all community theater and church ensembles, and who has the time for that?
Nobody does that's who.
But in college, not only do you and your friends have much more free time to practice, research, and subsume the traits of Othello or Blanch Dubois, you also have more fun doing it. I mean think about it, what better way to bond than to create a masterful theatrical production from scratch? All the late nights. All the pouring of emotional expression. All the harsh lighting.
