OLIVER, OLIVER

It is so hard to explain the bittersweet feeling that comes with the end of a show. Oliver finished its run on Sunday, and I just don't know what to do with myself.

I feel so good that I will  finally have some time to relax, actually get my homework done, and maybe eat a balanced meal--one that isn't at Perkin's at 1 a.m. But at the same time, I am going to miss the hustle and bustle of the theatre, the wonderful music, and most of all everyone's smiling faces every day.

I learned so much during this production. I had a large amount of responsibility. This was the first time I have ever really worked with children. Other than Miss Caroline of course. I thought this would be the hardest thing for me, and in many ways it was. But seeing how much they loved to be on stage, and had such a bond at the end of the show gave me so much gratification at struggling through the process a little bit. I learned that I may like children a little more than I thought.

I am so glad that I got to sing and help direct this show. There was so much that went into this show, I am glad that everyone had such a great time and enjoyed it.




There's me in the pink ruffle dress! I played the part of the Strawberry Seller, which is a small part, but I had a beautiful quartet called "Who Will Buy?"


I am so lucky to be a part of such a great music and theatre program :)
