I am a theater freak. Recently I tried out for the play 'Aladdin'. But, I found out today I didn't get the part I want, and I got a small part instead. All my friends got cool parts like the Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, the main parts. I feel really rejecting, I've never got rejected from a part I wanted before...

U might even like it and start to enjoy it. follow through on whatever u are doing and never give up or say i can't. [ sunshine1232's advice column | Ask sunshine1232 A Question ]

chaos answered Tuesday August 31 2004, 9:08 am: If you want a main part, you have to try out for a main part. Think about all the people who don't have a part at all! It takes everybody to have a good play. Just enjoy what you have now and focus on being the best character you can be. You will gain experience and be able to do a bigger part. Just keep trying.

AquamarineRose answered Monday August 30 2004, 10:03 pm: I wish our school did cool plays like Aladdin. Last year we did The Wizard of Oz.I was Glinda the good witch.I wasn't a huge part but I understand why I didn't recieve the part of Dorthy you know?Mainly because of my height but thats beside the point.If you are really serious about theater try joining a class to improve your skills.I bet Julia Roberts didn't get every part she tried out for.So don't let your small part bring you down.You still are part of the production and there is always next year.I will close with a quote from Shakespear I am sure you have heard a million times....'There are no small parts,only small actors.'

Pink_Flamingo answered Monday August 30 2004, 9:53 pm: You cant get the lead role everytime. Just try and make the best of your small part :) Its good that other people get a chance to have big roles too. Maybe in the next play you can get the lead role. Just keep up your theater work!

xo Meg ox answered Monday August 30 2004, 9:51 pm: hang in there, there will be other opportunities and maybe the kind of part you play well just wasn't the type that Aladdin features...don't give up, just have fun with your small part -- if it weren't for the small parts, the play wouldn't be half as good ~ they're important 2!
