What was an early, memorable theatrical experience?

My earliest memory is of a “Boy Who Cried Wolf” skit that my kindergarten class performed on the elementary school auditorium stage for our parents. At the same age, I was already accustomed to reciting a verse from the Bible in front of the congregation every week at Sunday School. I don’t recall seeing a play until middle school when I was taken on a field trip to see a college production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
