I was playing Marian in The Music Man in high school, and I had to kiss Harold Hill. It was my first stage kiss and his first kiss ever! We had to choreograph it very specifically so that it didn't look too awkward.

Andrea Miller. We kissed in a production of Carousel I did when I was in ninth grade. I was Billy Bigelow, and she was Julie Jordan. The kiss was so awkward, our director set aside an extra half hour to rehearse it. I was mortified.
