For each of these reasons, theater has become very special to me, but the most defining experience for me was at the end of my sophomore year. While I had dabbled in theater before, this was my first real chance to compete and I was lucky enough to have an experienced partner who showed me the ropes. It was the Spring Team competition of 2016, and I was determined to do the best I could. In the beginning I was a timid girl, afraid of everything, including (ironically) my drama coach. Our scene was a cut from Trojan Women by Euripides, and I was to be Cassandra, a beautiful young prophetess who watches Troy crumble around her.
As a result, Kara Walker had many challenges when she was growing up. She was hired to be a successful artist at a young age thinking that she would not succeed. She took the job and has been working in New York for 20 years. When she was teaching her
Theatre was able to lessen and just about cause my self-doubt to vanish. I have come up from a dark place of feeling my work is not good enough, as if my ability is lacking potential. Over the course of my final year in high school, theatre has showed me where my true home is. I find that I belong in a setting full of imagination, diversity, and of course, lighting. My skills in the field of lighting design and control are far beyond satisfactory and I am able to believe that.
The Addams’s family musical was a delightful play full of delightful humor, tense scenes, and heartfelt moments. The play opened late this spring with twenty-two college students from the Florida School of the Arts, a public art college in Palatka. The cast was led by Willie Beaton II as Gomez Addams, Bella Carlsen as Morticia Adams, Caitlin Sweeney as Wednesday Adams, and Briar Boggs as Lucas Benieke. The cast of acting students was, as a whole, quite good, performing A+ material. However, at some points of the show, it becomes clear that the students have some years left to learn.
In William Shakespeare's play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the use of multiple literary devices makes the play interesting. Dramatic irony, which is when the audience knows more than the characters, occurs numerous times throughout the play and grabs the attention of the audience. Soliloquies, which are lengthy speeches by a character to project their thoughts and emotions to the audience, this allows the audience to be more attentive. Allusions are references by characters to well-known places, events from myths or other literature that cause the audience to be absorbed into the play. After reading this marvelous play, it is obvious that Shakespeare uses dramatic irony, allusions, and soliloquies all written in blank verse to grasp the undivided attention of the audience.

Ms. Sun, in all actuality, is trying to do more than just help her students learn a play. She wants the kids to “do the exact opposite of what people expect” (1370), and be able to prove those people wrong that think that they are destined to a life of crime and poverty. Many of her students do succeed and continue to surprise her. Unfortunately, Ms. Sun’s effort doesn’t rule out for
It’s Saturday night - scratch that, Sunday morning, and I have twelve hours to submit my review of the play “Peter and the Starcatcher.” With a groan, I conjure up the energy to open my notebook, find the Playbill, and finally begin writing. This is my life. Well, at least for seven weekends during the school year. As a part of the Cappies program, each member of a Cappies team must attend seven high school theatrical performances over the school year and write a review for each one; the best three at each
Generally, when I was 17 my life was good, I had my mom to look up to and my dad spoiling me, I was getting any and everything. However, on my 18th birthday that the day I knew things were going extremely wrong. On that night, I went out with a couple of friends and things didn’t
Baseball Narrative Rough Draft I was so nervous for this morning’s competition. Today was the day that I had the chance to show to a judge what I had to offer into the heat of the KMEA Piano Kansas State Competition. The songs that I had practiced over from June to October were mere children’s play compared to others in the group who played pieces like Claire de Lune and the 12 Variations of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (no one in middle school with common sense would choose repertoire made for high schoolers). “Melody, make sure you go over the spots in your songs that you need to work on”, Mom said, shattering my thought process.
I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?”
Two Month Project That turns into Family EVSC decided to put on its 29th Summer Musical this Summer and it will be none other than Modern Millie. This Musical is set in the 20’s.

Junior Katie Blandford who goes to Reitz High School is in her first Summer Musical and couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity.
But unfortunately, she left to the Boarding School a semester ahead of me. Then by the time I got accepted into Flandreau, she had gotten herself into a predicament and she wasn’t there to tend the winter semester. Flandreau always had their little dinky school dances; it was a tradition that occurred every Friday night.
