Theater guest blog: ready for the show!

Guest blog from Patel Conservatory Summer Theater production
by Aliya Burshan, cast member of PCYT's Seussical the Musical, Jr.
Yesterday in Seussical Jr. rehearsals, we ran through the whole entire musical twice. The day started out very hectic with all of the technicians there. We were finally putting all the final pieces together. We do run-throughs for several days so that everyone gets comfortable performing. That way, students aren’t as nervous for the actual performances.
Then came the best time of the day…lunch!! Everybody rushes to the tables to save seats for their friends. My friends and I always sing Broadway songs and talk about what would be our dream part in any show. Mine would be to play Wednesday from the Addams Family!  All my friends have their favorite Broadway show, and it’s fun to talk about them. Many of us have seen live musicals.

After lunch, we did another run-through of the show, and we went back to the dressing rooms to see Mrs. Amy for costumes. She is so AMAZING at what she does. She makes one costume into another with just a stitch of her needle. Tomorrow we’ll be doing full run-throughs with costumes. Now the show is really coming together! I can’t wait for our opening night performance on Thursday!
You will have an awesome time in any of the PCYT Jr. shows. Just to let you know, an opportunity for you to perform in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center is coming up soon. This school year, 5-8th graders are performing Once Upon A Mattress and 2-4th graders are performing The Bear Went Over The Mountain. Sign up now to be a part of our cast!!!

See you soon!
