Yes once when I have to dress up as a soldier in a school play. I just froze on the stage and couldn't even move let alone speak. Everybody was laughing including members of my family. Worst day everrrrrr.
As a drama teacher and play producer I've seen stage fright in all its various guises, from light nerves to frozen depression. Working with young adults is extremely rewarding and exciting but you do get the odd blip and I recall one particular young man in his first play who had gone through rehearsals on cruise control and performed brilliantly - until first night!!!
No way could I get him onto the stage. He had a total paralysis thing going on. I can see him now backstage sitting on a stage box, head in hands shaking but frozen. I had to ask one of the lighting engineers to play lead role. Luckily there was a lot of narrative in the play and we could blunder our way through it. Poor guy responded later on and managed to get his act together for later performances.
I don't suffer from stage fright due mainly to a strategy I have that channels tension into good working energy .....I scream and prance about alot beforehand!
Oh, sure I did, do and will do!
I'm not much of an actor, although I too had been helping in several plays; mostly minor roles. But funnily enough, back then I was completely calm.
But when I was still playing violin, and we had class performances, I was completely calm until it was my turn to go to the stage and play my piece! As much as I adored the latest pieces I practiced so much with my teacher, be it Thais Meditation, The Girl With Flaxen Hair or The Swan, I would walk to the stage, hand my violin to my teacher to tune the instrument for me and prepare the papers with my notes - and my knees would be shaking the whole time I was playing! I swear the people had to see it, because I felt as if I was barely standing!
As a dancer now I'm usually rather calm - but when we are performing some choreography we finished only few days before the performance and none of us is sure we'll be able to dance it without forgetting what steps are in the next part, I'm nervous as hell; palms sweating, breathes are heaving in my chest and I feel ready to drop with a heart-attack xD But once I'm on stage, I suddenly find myself standing straight, with practiced yet still natural smile and doing the steps without thinking about what I'm doing.
Funny how this works, no?

The beginning should be strong. And I also know that I should concentrate only on the presentation. Besides these what else should I do?
