Theatre Groupies

What’s ten times cooler than being one of those obnoxious, histrionic theatre kids always gnashing at each others’ throats to steal the limelight?

Following them around!

For some it’s because of a job in the building, for others its friends, and for me it’s my ex boyfriend, who invited me to spend countless, exhausting hours with the Theatre kids so I now know most of them by name.

What’s an actor without an audience? Unreasonably narcisistic! But, an actor WITH an audience: REASONABLY narcisistic! See, they need us!

We are the seekers, not the prophets; we’ve found something that steals us, something higher than ourselves, something that tugs at the very heartstrings of the human condition! It’s about the witty banter. It’s about the comp tickets. It’s about the work study job in the box office. It’s about watching common crisees bear the utmost of importance in the group. It’s about standing alone at the party with the plastic cup of cheap vodka and Sprite wondering what the fuck these kids are talking about. It’s about hating everyone and loving everyone and talking about it ALL THE TIME. And most of all, it’s about the computer lab in the building that’s always unlocked, where you’re allowed to eat, drink and be merry without the ITS guardians bearing down with vengance!

Here’s to all the non-theatre majors who have, willingly or not, spent countless hours wading through that churning sea of angst that is the CU theatre community.



  1. most of those theatre kids are assholes.

    • Oh, hate is such a strong word!

      I’m a groupie so in a sense I’m a theatre kid in spirit. I just don’t act or anything hard like that.
