I never missed a birthday. I never missed a school play
I never missed a birthday. I never missed a school play. We carpooled. And the greatest compliment I can ever get is not about my career or performance or anything; it’s when people say, ‘You know, your girls are great.’ That’s the real thing for me.

Kaya Scodelario
By high school, I was telling everyone, ‘Oh, I’m going to be a doctor when I grow up,’ because my dad was always saying to me, ‘Pick a career path where you’re always going to be necessary.’ But by junior year, I was president of choir, I was the lead in the school play, and I just loved being onstage performing.

Lin-Manuel Miranda
I was in high school, and I was the guy that always got cast in the school play.

I came on trying to be terrifying, but everyone laughed at me.

Arthur Smith
When I was about ten years old, I was brought to London to watch a production of ‘The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.’ I think it was at Sadler’s Wells in maybe 2000.

George Blagden
When I decided that I might want to do acting for a living – I don’t know where it really came from, since there was no school play or any of that – my mom gave me her blessing. I had to get a scholarship – that was the only way I could have gone to drama school.

When you’re doing a medieval show like ‘Pillars,’ it starts off a bit like a school play. You’re all in funny costumes; you’ve had your coffee, and you say, ‘Good morning’. Then you go on set and, if you’ve got good actors and directors, it takes on a life of its own.

Ian McShane
Any parent who tells their kids that they can’t attend a school play or go to a soccer match because they have to work is kidding themselves. It’s OK to miss a game or two or a performance here and there, but it’s not all right to miss the majority of them.
