Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Take the Stage TogetherCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Take the Stage Together

By Rachel Sparks

This weekend, share the spotlight with your partner by performing on stage with one another. If you and your sweetheart have watched plays, comedy shows, and concerts and have always fantasized about acting or being up on stage, creating your own will make for a fun date night!

Cupid’s weekend date idea will get you and your partner on stage!

Search your local newspaper for opportunities. Most papers have an “entertainment” section that includes workshops, auditions, and open mic nights. Pick one that looks fun and spend the weekend acting out another character or enjoying the applause together.

Start your date in a class or workshop.  Practice playing different characters, like a quarreling couple or a meddlesome duo. For something different, check out a comedy class. You’ll learn to be comfortable with your body and your surroundings and find humor in every situation.

Take the skills you learned and audition for a show. Your significant other can be your partner in a play or dance audition. He can even be your target during a stand-up audition.

Are you not the performing type? Try hitting up the karaoke bar instead. You can spend the night sipping on cocktails while you randomly select songs for each other to sing. Or you can have an entirely duet-based night, choosing songs meant for two like “Endless Love,” “I Got You Babe,” “Under Pressure” or “You’re the One that I Want.”

No matter what you decide, make sure you and your partner are putting on a show together. The excitement of performing will be a memory you’ll carry with you.
