Question Posted Monday August 30 2004, 9:29 pm

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...

[ Answer this question ]

Additional info, added Monday August 30 2004, 9:54 pm:
It wasnt the main part I tried out for. I never try out for the main parts or leads. I try out for medium minor roles, like they appear once in awhile in the play and usually have 30 something likes compared to 90 lines with the lead..

Maybe give some free advice about: Theater?

just because you didn't get the part you wanted doesn't mean you have to drop out or quit the play you never know what that small part you go might have in store for u. 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.

Dont worry about it,everyone 's gonna have good and bad luck.Try and look on the bright side, you got a part even though it is small and its just another experience through theater.Sometimes you cant always get what you expected but make the best out of it.Hope i helped and dont worry maybe you'll ge tit next time just keep trying to be positive.

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.

DOnt take it to the heart... since you've never gotten rejected before this u should realize that theres nothing wrong wit u... just be happy for ur friends... & help them out with their parts... the reason why u probably didnt get the part u wanted was cuz whoever was in charge probably wanted to give other people a chance...

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.'

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!

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!
