I love Theatre!

I love theatre because there is literally something for everyone to do!

You can build, you can design, you can create, you can act, you can sing, you can manage, you can make silly props, you can make super neat props, you can set the whole scene with just a few lights, you can tell a story with just the set, you can convey personalities with costumes, you can make someone cry or laugh or want to yell with just your voice and actions, you can be the overseer of all, you can add ambiance through sounds and music, but most importantly you get the opportunity to convey a message to a group of people that just might change their lives.

Filling Friday

IMG_5216It’s 9pm on a Friday night and I’m in the presence of 30 Drama Club students watching Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.”  It’s Drama Club movie night!  Everyone is snuggled in blankets, perched on couches or sitting on pillows with piles of food around them in our wonderful Black Box Theatre.

IMG_5629But don’t worry, this wasn’t the start to our evening, no… these kids have had a filling Friday.  Of-course we had school, compiled with classes and things to fill our heads with.  But the magic starts when the bell rings and the school goes home for the weekend.  Today the Fine Arts Wing was a twitter with energy.  The “Alice in Wonderland” cast rehearsed and created the Trial Scene from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland while other brave souls auditioned for the AFS Variety Show.  We had dancers, singers, comedians, and hula-hoopers line the halls.  There were Actors rehearsing with ipads and writing their script.  Everyone was alive and ready to start their weekend right.  Finally at 8pm they all piled into the Black Box, junk food in hand to watch a different telling of the classics Lewis Carroll wrote over 150 years ago.

These are the days I live for!
