So we had auditions and callbacks for Southwest High School's musical last week. I'm proud to say that we had more people audition this year than last year! I love getting kids involved in theatre. It just warms my heart! And the show this year is (drum roll please....) 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! I absolutely love this show and I think the kids are going to have so much fun with it! They will be playing some very interesting characters that I hope will really challenge them this year, But the best part is (another drum roll please....) THE AUDIENCE GETS TO BE A PART OF THE SPELLING BEE! Before the show, you can sign up to be onstage as a part of the Spelling Bee! Who knows what could happen? We will start rehearsal in January so look out for those video blogs as well. I know what you are thinking. Really? You are rehearsing 2 shows at once? Yep! That's usually how I do it! That way I can keep the buzz and the interest going. Each show gets my undivided attention when I am rehearsing with them but it also keeps me very busy but I don't mind at all. After all these years I still get very excited about putting on a
So I was finally able to get the first A Raisin in the Sun video blog up! I would do more blogs if I could but I am only one person and have to do 20 million other things! I am just blessed to have some volunteers this year like Vianca Vasquez who comes and records video for me so I can direct rehearsal and not worry about trying to record at the same time. She has been such a big help! I wish we had more volunteers but I know that once people continue to see us grow and see the participation we have in our shows that they will want to be a part of it somehow.
I am also excited to be starting Private Acting Lessons. I have had some people interested in that. I'm hoping to be able to offer classes in 2013 for kids and teens. I just have to make sure the interest is there. In the mean time, I will continue to work on A Raisin in the Sun while at the same time preparing to direct Southwest High School's musical again this year! This year's show will be a lot of fun! Stay tuned for updates on that one too!
