My daughter (age 12) is pretty good at singing and acting. In the summer, she puts on plays in our garage with the neighbor kids and can carry a tune better than I ever could. Not only that, she can make herself cry (she's a natural born actress). She loves Broadway musicals, and show a STRONG interest in them. Right now she's memorizing some of the songs from Wicked.
However, she says she would NEVER want to be in a play. I suspect she has stage fright and doesn't feel comfortable in front of a crowd. I want to encourage her without being pushy. There are a lot of theater opportunities for her age in our community. Should I just sign her up for something? I'm guessing she would LOVE it and don't want her to miss out.
