22 Signs You Were A Theatre Major
You don't get stage fright; the stage gets frightened of you.
You spell "theatre" with an "re," not an "er."
You don't leave a room, you "exit."
Conversely, you don't come into a room, you "enter."
You have multiple copies of Shakespeare's complete works.
Also, your bookshelf is littered with these:
You don't move furniture out of a room, you "strike" it.
You can recognize a scrim when you see one.
You are comfortable in front of a crowd.
You don't start new chapters in your life, you begin new "acts."
People speaking from the back of their throats drives you crazy.
You catch yourself doing vocal warmups in public.
What better place to shake out that stress than in line at the grocery store?
You can fake slap the shit out of someone.
You are hyperaware of actors in the wings when watching a play.
Also, you are hypercritical of "interpretations" of stage classics.
You use "Upstage/Downstage" and "Stage Right/Left" when "blocking" people in photographs.
You at one time posted a note like this:
You still call this the "Scottish Play" even when you're not in a theatre.
You are probably not using said degree.
You still think saying "Good luck" instead of "Break a leg" is a jinx.
You instinctually find yourself "cheating out" when in a group of people.
This sight still makes your heart skip a beat.
