Only 2 weeks left…how did that happen?! Here are some highlights of Week 4.

  • Stephen Belber, one of the writers of The Laramie Project, came to speak with the Wingspan Ensemble on Thursday and it was so inspiring! We got some really great stories about the creation of this show, including all of their trips to Laramie to interview the residents. It was so cool to hear all about that. He also answered many of our burning questions, some of them really difficult to answer! He also told them that the scene they shared was his favorite version of Laramie that he has seen so far. No big deal. 😉
  • The Wingspan Players’ classes wrapped up last week and I got a chance to see the final “presentations” of all of them. Wow. The work that happened in those rooms was magical. I got to see dances from all over the world, hear perfectly crafted audition songs from all of the students, watch super cool fight scenes in Stage Combat, and hear some incredible scenes performed in the acting classes. I was so inspired!
  • The JUST SO cast shared the opening number for everyone in our Theatre Company meeting on Wednesday and the crowd went WILD! We can’t wait to see the whole thing on Friday!!!!!
  • The Glee Class also shared their song “Roar” by Katy Perry at our meeting on Wednesday and it was SO GOOD! Alani even pulled out her guitar in the middle of it and helped Brett accompany the class. So awesome.
  • Our highlighted shout out this week comes from one of our Wingspan Players and shouts out the directors!

“[Shout out to] Laura, Laurie, Isabel, and Jacque because you are all awesome!”
