What is Bit Players? It’s a Young Adult book series, a website/blog, and a state of mind. Most of us want to be stars, in some way, but we all feel like bit players sometimes, on the stage and in life. The good news is, as the saying goes, “There are no bit parts, only bit players.” In other words, it’s not so much about the hand you’re dealt, but how you play that hand. (I know, there are some circumstances when that would be a really annoying thing to hear, but in general it works.)
All YA fiction-lovers and theatre-lovers are welcome into the Bit Players world, no matter how small your role. Follow the Bit Players blog, Facebook page or Tweets (links at right). Find loads of costume/make-up/prop ideas on Pinterest (search on Bit Players and select Pinners), and submit your own.
On this site, in addition to reading the blog, you can read about the Bit Players series of novels. The newest one, Bit Players, Bird Girls and Fake Break-Ups, was published in February 2014. Buy the book in paperback or e-book if you have a few spare dollars, and access the YouTube videos of the songs used in the books. Thanks for visiting.
