Week One is (almost) over…
Well it is true that time flies when you are having fun… The students and I all agree that this week has simultaneously flown by and felt like an eternity! In the past week we have made new friends, cast our shows, hit the ground running in our classes, had our first ever ALL CONSERVATORY Theater Company meeting, and have begun our rehearsals. Phew!
I want to send a HUGE congratulations to all of the students for their hard work, focus and bravery this week. Auditions and callbacks are not only scary, they are emotionally draining and these guys handled it with such poise! True professionals!! So again, congratulations on jobs well done. I can’t wait to see these shows!!
I also would like to feature our first SHOUT OUT! A shout out is recognizing someone for doing something great that deserves special mention. Teachers, students, observers, can write one (or several) on a card and submit them in our “shout out” envelope. Every week I will pick a “highlighted” shout out to both present on the Shout Out board itself and here! So here is week one’s:
SHOUT OUT TO ALL OF THE NEW WINGSPANNERS!
–Submitted by Anonymous
I second that shout out–we are so excited to welcome all of these new faces to our community! Though it already feels like we have known them forever!
And finally, I just want to put a couple of really exciting announcements here. This week I finalized plans with both Greg Kotis (one of the writers of URINETOWN) and Stephen Belber (one of the writers of LARAMIE PROJECT) to come speak with our high school students later this month! We are so excited and feel incredibly honored that they are kindly lending us some of their time so we can even further connect with the material this year! I will be sure to share all about those visits after they occur!
Here are a couple more shots of this week in action:
