What a great first day of theatre classes! We played plenty of "get to know you" games and learned a little about our theatre. I am so excited for this new year of theatre! And look what our view from the theatre is this year: a nice, clean, pond!
The theatre was lucky enough to have Michael McGoff, the associate director of The Wizard of Oz (Coming to the Buell Feb. 7-13) speak to theatre students this morning! Mr. McGoff spoke on a variety of topics including casting, production, bringing new shows to the stage, and what it takes to maintain a life in the theatre. Micheal's credits are vast. He's worked with Alice Ripley in Next to Normal, Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp in Rent, George Hamilton in La Cage A Folles, and Edward Norton and Catherine Keener in Burn This. He is also the reigning production stage manager for NYC Shakespeare in the Park and worked on Broadway's Wicked. Thank you Mr. McGoff for sharing your expertise with us, and thank you to the students and teachers that attended!
Congratulations to the students who participated in the Talent Show! The audience enjoyed watching dinosaurs eat eggs, a seven headed monster talk about its strange planet, and an expert on boybands. Also, the audience was tearing up during a beautiful performance of On My Own! Thank you so much everyone who came to see the talent show and thank you to the talented students who participated!
