When I was around 7-8, my mother put me in a children's theatre workshop where I learned about basic acting and storytelling. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and it helped me become involved in my elementary school's choir, where I was in a couple musicals. I continued taking drama in middle school, but, by high school, computers and video games had taken over most of my life, but I still enjoyed seeing stage performances. In my adult life I was part of a troop that did shadow-casts of The Rocky Horror Picture Show for several years. I recognize that I'm not a very skilled performer. I can't act very well and I'm a terrible singer and dancer, so I don't try out for any 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.
