Theater guest blog by Braxton Perry, cast member for Our Town
Whoosh… and almost another month has passed on by. They say all good things must come to an end… but I think it’s just mainly everything has to come to an end.
But we’re not yet at this story’s end. Today is the opening day of Patel Conservatory Youth Theater’s production of the play, Our Town.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been doing lots of refining, refining and more refining. I think I almost have the whole play memorized with the way I quote it 1,000 times a day. At the beginning of this week, we started dress rehearsals. They went great – well, of course, unless you include that bit with me and a fake mustache… let’s just say I’m glad I no longer have to battle it (I really dislike when inanimate objects win).
So now to the meat of the issue: Here you are, reading my blogs week by... er... post (I’m not that consistent) and you haven’t bought tickets yet!!! It’s not like we need you to buy tickets, because the ticket sales are going fast, but… I thought… since we’d been friends for so long… that you’d… So here’s the deal: BUY TICKETS!!!
Sorry for having to use caps, BUT IT’S AWESOME BECAUSE THAT’S HOW I FEEL INSIDE ALL THE TIME!!!
I wanted to thank you for following me along on my brief journey. It won’t be the last. I feel like we’re friends that have shared an adventure. And of course everyone knows friends go to see other friend’s performances.
Really though, thanks a bunch.
Break a leg!
[My] Teachers of the Week:
Gosh… so many people. Tall Paul, Kerry Glamsch, all my dance teachers and so many others. Almost everyone here at the Patel Conservatory should be included. Thanks to everyone who made and continues to make my time here awesome.
Things I like:
Learning new things each day
Pas de chat (I can’t do it, but it looks really nice)
Liquid to powder foundation (yep, I officially bought my first makeup)
