How can you get rid of stage fright

i have a performance with over 900 people in it and i am scared

It's normal. You just have to get up there and do it. Once you get started it's easier. You can't get rid of the butterflies in your stomach. You just have to teach them to fly in formation.

I don't think you can. Some performers live with it. Carly Simon for one.

All you can really do is not let it get the best of you. Remain calm, focus on your role, and you should be fine.

I am not into entertainment but I have delivered speeches and debated in front of an audience of over a 1000 people. I have always had the stress, voice crackling in the first few minutes. What I can suggest to you is to know your stuff really well, anticipate your first few minutes and surely do go to the toilet before :P Relax your mind and when its time to get onto the stage, just go for it and start whatever you have to do ! :) Best of luck ! :D

Someone told me I should pretend that everyone in the audience was naked. The subject I was speaking on was about income taxes...teaching my first big seminar to CPAs and attorneys. Well, I did what they told me to do...thought about all those big wigs sitting there sans clothes and I got to laughing....so had to make up a quick ice breaker joke....could noy think of one to save my life so I just went on and told them I was a little nervous and what I had been told to do to overcome it. Perfect joke....we all had a good laugh and my class went really well, as did all the rest. One never knows when out there in front of the whole world...lol
