Hello to all the Esteemed Theatre Enthusiasts,
How have you all been? I feel like it’s been simultaneously a long and short amount of time since I last posted on the blog. If I have ever said that I have been busy in any past blog posts (which I probably mentioned in almost every post), I LIED! I am the busiest I have been this year right now, and it’s only going to get even crazier! I am stressed just typing about it all. But it’s a good stress. A lot of good things are coming in these final few months of the school year.
One good thing that just ended, was Into The Woods! The show finished streaming this past weekend, and I am so proud of what we pulled together. This show is just another example of how we will continue to prosper no matter the setbacks. And I am so happy that we made it through a stressful and exhausting 9 days of filming. That is one part of the show I won’t miss. But shoutout to N2 Sports for filming and editing our show! They worked so hard and they really helped us make something amazing. We seriously couldn’t have done it without them.
Up next (and by next, I meant this Tuesday), we have One Acts auditions! Make sure you’re going to the digital call board and filling out an application if you want to audition and showing up after school this Tuesday (March 23). Callbacks will be later this week and Cast list should be posted at the end of this week! So very exciting. Since I am in theatre 3 this year, I get to write and direct my own one act! I can’t wait to start this process, alongside my peers in ¾ who have written some really amazing stories!
You already know the deal.
One Act Auditions – March 23 after school, after the thespian meeting that you won’t want to miss!
One Act Callbacks – March 25 after school

The Scars That Made Us – April 24 @ 7pm
Speaking of this upcoming week, this is the week that we start going back full time. Unless you decided to go fully virtual, which I did not. Going back five days a week makes me nervous for a risk of more exposure. But it will feel a little more like normal, so that is going to be nice. Although, I did get used to having those 3 other weekdays off of school. Clearly, I have mixed emotions about coming back. It is important, however, to keep in mind that even though mandates are loosening up, this pandemic is in no way shape or form over! So, stay masked up!
Okay guys, well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Make sure you’re taking the time to relax and unwind every now and then. Things get chaotic and busy, but nothing is more important than your mental health.
