DRAMARAMA, by E. Lockhart

The book “Dramarama” by E. Lockhart gave me a different look and feel while reading this book. I felt as if I had a personal connection with the story. while reading the book, it was not obvious that I was reading a book, more like a movie playing. As soon as I opened the first page, a movie started to play in my head. With the first page being dialogue like a play when Demi says “Is it on?” (pg.1), an image and movie played in my head.


The story is a girl and a gay boy meeting at a small ordinary town. When the girl meets the boy she finds her soul mate, but since he is gay, her best friend who she loves. He brought out the real her, she finally has the chance to be herself and talk about theater and classical films and music. No one in her town liked that type of stuff. “Sarah’s dull, mild and boring. Are you dull mild and boring?” Asked Demi (the boy) (pg. 20). When they both auditioned for a school of the arts, they decided to change Sarah’s name to Sandra.


This audition was just what they both needed to get themselves out of the small boring town they were in. THEY WERE BOTH ACCEPTED. It was a great experience for them, but of course you put a whole bunch of theater kids together there definitely WILL be tension, drama, and conflicts. Everything you can think about, is in this book. Tears, Sweat, laughers, fights, love triangles, broken hearts. It’s a journey for these two “ordinary” kids.






T perform isn’t to show


To speak isn’t to tell


To act isn’t to pretend


To dance isn’t to move

Its more then to show , to perform is to express. To speak is to be heard, make a statement. To act is to change and adapt. To dance is to explain words and feelings with your body.
