Final Performance.

As I’ve thought of what I wanted to write for our final show, I have trouble finding words. What started out as a simple decision to try something new since I’m already at a new studio turned out to be one of the greatest things I’ve ever done. I’ve faced fears–so many fears–right in the…

Orchestra week, performance one

Theater Week, Day 2

Let’s preface this post with the knowledge that almost as soon as I got to the theater, something found it’s way into my right eye, causing it to tear up, my nose to congest, and my eye to turn red and remain irritated throughout the night. This rehearsal was shortened a little due to the…
