A new star

Even though I’m an introvert, I have pushed myself to take steps in front of an audience.

This column from 1986 tells of my first attempt at acting. I was afraid, but even so, I went in front of that audience and became the nosy old lady from across the hall–it was a fun part.

Many of my friends worked on this play. Seeing them succeed in other productions made me want to give it a try, too.

A minor character was the best way to start. For me, it helped me come out of my shell.
