When I was about 8, my mother put my in a children's public theatre workshop where we learned about basic acting and storytelling. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and it led to me becoming involved in my elementary school's choir, where I was in a couple musicals. I continued taking drama in middle school, but wasn't involved in high school, but still enjoyed seeing various stage performances. In my adult life I was part of a troop that did shadow-casts of The Rocky Horror Picture Show each year, but I recognize that I'm not a very skilled actor, and I certainly can't sing, so I don't try out for any more demanding parts, but I still very much love seeing live plays and musicals.

I use the British spelling of "theatre" when I'm talking about stage performances, and the American spelling "theater" when talking about movies, to help distinguish between the two.
