Tell teacher the online homework wouldn’t work all weekend.
This weekend’ll most likely be the last theatre performance I will ever do. Theatre has been the better part of my high school years.
I’m no athlete and I’m no genius.
So I fueled nearly all of my extracurricular time in our theatre department. I’ve been apart of 7 productions, 1 being on Running Crew (Singin’ in the Rain), 5 of which as an Assistant Stage Manager (Taming of the Shrew, Annie, 12 Angry Jurors, Les Miserable), and the last two as Stage Manager of the whole production (Charlotte’s Web, and Grease). All of which I’m extremely proud of. My final production, Grease, opens tomorrow after several months of work. 141 sound cues. 17 spot cues. 117 light cues. 9 scene changes.
It’s a bitter sweet. And I cannot thank those who have been apart enough for all they’ve done for me.
In total, I’ve clocked in just under 2000 hours of time for my theatre department.
And I’m going to miss all of that time desperately.
Let the lack of academic attention begin!
