Before going backstage, Mr Jacobsen gave me a little advice: It’s pitch black in the hall so you can’t see anyone, Guess what: He lied. You know how I know? Well 1 of the technicians (Techies) told me. Walking backstage I hoped onto my platform. It was time for the Production*: Webzidazical.

I was standing there awaiting for my cue. Mr Burt was talking and I heard the crowd roar with excitement. My heart was pounding so loudly that I think that the whole audience heard it. Feeling like I was going to faint, I started singing a little song. Suddenly I realised It was nearly time for me to go on stage, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Here goes...

While I was saying my lines, I could feel the lights beaming down on me. Looking out into the hall, Seeing 1000 eyes staring at me. My butterflies were fluttering like mad! Fearing I would forget my lines, I remembered that it was the Fakebook scene relief took over. Why I hear you ask? Well in this scene I barely had any lines.

Finishing the Fakebook scene, Came: World’s got talent! In this scene I act as a judge on a famous show that is called, you guessed it: World’s got talent. I act alongside the other actors: Pale Fanua (Judge) Becky Green (Judge) and the MC. Reciting my last line I felt my pocket for my laser. It was going to be used in the scene ‘Youthtube’. “Oh no!” I whispered quietly. Panic took over. Searching my pockets for my laser was hard especially when the audience is RIGHT THERE!!! The scene was nearly over, and that was a relief because I needed to warn the Techies about this situation. I ran off stage (Part of the act) and I was trying to look for the person in charge of backstage, Mr Marks. “Selena go on” I heard Helen tell me. A little too late...

Scene 3: Youthtube. Worrying about the laser, A good Idea sprung into my head. It was improvisation. I didn’t need to take it this far but you got to do what you got to do.
With my laser I had to point to a video but, if you haven’t realised I don’t have my laser. So instead of pointing I touched it with my fingers. Nothing happened. Touched it again, still nothing happened. Thinking I looked like a fool up there I was preparing to give up, when a miracle happened. It worked. Finally they worked out where the flow was going. Guess improvisation works out.

Sadly the Production was coming to an end. Everyone was taking their final bows. It was my turn to take my BIG bow. “And our Main actor Selena!”. The crowd cheering for me was the best feeling I have experienced. Making sure my final bow was the biggest, I was grinning from ear to ear, because the whole cast from the production did a great job. If I had to do this again I certainly would!

*If you’re wondering what a production is, it is kind of like a show that happens every 2 years. It is a screenplay written produced and performed by the lovely children and teachers at Pt England school.


  1. Selena I was sooooooo proud of you in the production. I wish you had posted some video along with this report though. Do you have some? If not, send me an email because I have some lovely clips of you that you could upload to this blog. Keep on joining drama teams because you HAVE got talent!

    I really liked your post about our production night 'Webzidazical'. I thought you were a really good actor on the night, and you have talent. Hope you reveal your talent later in life and keep up the great work Selena.
