Well clearly weeks 5 and 6 got busy and I never had a chance to write about highlights of those weeks. But I can tell you that they were just as astounding as weeks 1 -4!
Week 5 provided us with the opportunity to see the fruits of all of the Wingspan Ensemble classes’ labors as well as the showcase of all of the hard work the Wingspan Players put into their rehearsals. JUST SO was…just so…amazing! (Sorry…I had to) And the audiences were completely wowed by their talent and ensemble work that was so evident in every moment of the show!
At the end of Week 5, we sadly said goodbye to our Wingspan Players for the summer and focused our attention to the openings of URINETOWN and THE LARAMIE PROJECT. Both of these shows were so awe-inspiring that I had to keep reminding myself that these were our students that only ranged in age from 14 – 17! They both oozed professionalism, focus, and precision. URINETOWN had me laughing so hard I had a hard time breathing and THE LARAMIE PROJECT moved me to tears at nearly every line of it; I felt so privileged to even be in the audience of such a powerful piece of theatre done so well.
And then, just like that it was all over! I can hardly believe we put another Summer Conservatory to rest. Again I say that I feel so lucky to be able to work with these amazing students and teachers. Congratulations to everyone involved on an incredible summer of work and growth!
Look for Fall Class announcements soon. And I will post all of the photos once I edit and organize them all!
