The Easter Bunny has come and gone but theatre just keeps going. This past weekend our students participated in "I Perform For," which included students from every arts division. They put on a performance (live stream) to raise money for the Damon Runyon Cancer Fund. Last year, this event brought in over $4,000. We'll let you know the figure for this year when it comes in.
The Amadeus cast/crew is working hard this week to put the finishing touches on their production which opens next Friday, April 17. If you don't have tickets yet you need to get them as they are few and far between. The set designed by Luke D'Allessandro and the costumes designed by Candy Hughes are breathtaking.
Many of our students are going to see an abridged version of Cyrano on Wednesday, April 8. It is being produced by Parallel 45, a local theatre company that includes many of our alumni. Our own Laura Mittelstaedt will be playing Cyrano. (That's right Cyrano). We are all looking forward to seeing it.
Yet to come in April is the studio produciton of Let Me Down Easy and we also have three guest artists coming. Add in the continuing rehearsals for The King and I, and there is no moss growing under our feet.
Keep your student in your mind and keep the calls and goodies coming.
