Acting was awesome I really saw the actors get into their parts. The actors had moments of emotion portraying the characters personality in the story. The whole musical was very entertaining I watched both acts, found it to have different points of view on how the time in Berlin was for Cliff and Sally. How the Germans and Jew might have been like before World War II. It also showed how it was like to be an individual away from home and not knowing what would happen next. Cliff reminded me of how I would like to travel and meet people for inspiration even if there were differences about how they saw their lives. One of the character that got my attention was Sally she was very funny, serious and had Cliff worried for some reason she had a natural flow of just being herself. The other two characters I really liked was Herr and Fraulein Story it shows how these two were very good friends and slowly started dating and then got married. One was a Jew and the other a German to me it expressed that people did not see it as a bad thing to be with someone who is not from the same background or culture. Even through times that they could not be together they managed to be
The Wild My Family and I were at home eating dinner. After dinner I told my mom that I had left something on top of the mountain, so she said “‘go up to get it
Orchestra has always been one of my favorite classes to go to during the day. After choosing to play the cello in middle school, I continued playing the instrument in high school. It was in this class that I had made most of my closest friends, many of whom I
I had always assumed that my legs were strong and that I had decent muscle control, however, this thought was proven wrong at the beginning of my junior year in high school due to a detrimental injury. It was the first game of fall league for basketball, and within the first five minutes I had succumbed to an injury. Tearing my ACL and Meniscus has taught me to continue improving on my strength, not let this one injury keep me down, and to keep a positive mindset.
Overally, I loved it. A lot of things happened that I would not think was possible because I have been to previous performances. It was always an unexpecting experience being in the same room with the actors and actresses because
It was late one day in June, and the sky was as blue and clear as sparkling wine. I sat back in my hammock reading the book Unbroken enjoying myself, and my uncle came up and asked me if I wanted to play poker with him, 5$ buy in. I jumped at the idea finished my page and went inside the house. Poker is a pretty big thing in my family and I’ve grown up playing and my uncle was one of the best, so spending time with him playing poker is always one of my favorite things to do. We proceed to set up the table, “Texas Holdem“ he says, Jacks to open”. Nothing weird, so we get the game going and the pots getting pretty big when all of the sudden he drops his cards. I stare the cards dead in the eye and see that i'm going to surpass him! He looks
When the Weeping Willow trees became abundant around every sector of the car, I knew we were getting close. Once we passed the bridge by the small, grass bank called Cypher Beach, I could barely sit still in the front seat of my grandparents truck because I knew we were about to arrive. There I sat, waiting anxiously with my size ten feet smashed into a size seven foot box because if I removed them, I affected my grandfather's ability to drive and my grandmother’s ability to sit and look pretty. Even though the flip of the coin always caused me to sit in the front, compared to the comfy back where the other four children sat, it was all worth it when we arrived to our destination. The destination was just up the road, where we turned right
In Oklahoma, where there are bloody rumbles and serious crimes made here in this big city, but there is a tiny sixteen year old boy living in the middle of it all, and that was me, Johnny. The Greaser was like a second home for each other. They were rough, old fashion, and have been In rumbles where breaking your arm wasn’t a serious injury, but they help another out. I, in the other hand, was not like them. They say that heroes need a dark past in order to be stronger in the comics I read, but that didn’t happen to me. I was abused by my own parents and I got jumped by those rich Socs. They left scars and pain for me, I felt like I’ve gotten weaker after this, not stronger.
When I was a toddler my parents discovered that I could not form words the way most children do. I was capable of making sounds, but I could never communicate my thoughts fully. After a visit to the doctor, they decided I had childhood apraxia of speech. Many children are diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech, and with therapy they can learn to speak like children unaffected by apraxia. After my therapy I spoke the same way all of my classmates spoke, but I still had shy tendencies that would often get the better of me. I began taking dance lessons, and a few years later I began auditioning for community theatre. After not getting cast in multiple productions, I finally had a chance to be in a musical. I quickly fell in love with theatre
Working with music takes a certain type of patients. That’s why when I knew this project was present, I had the perfect person in mind because I worked so close with this person once before. So, I decided to gather my resources and get in contact with our family friend Dr. Snodgrass who is the superintendent of the Fort Osage R-1 School District and ask if I could receive her email so I could set up a facetime call with her and get this interview on the road. Her name Is Erica Gregory and she is a high school band teacher at Fort Osage located in Independence Missouri. The reasons I decided to interview her were simple. First, she was my star time teacher which meant she was my study hall teacher. As a freshman coming into high school and being placed in a study hall class
The musical Hamilton took the world by storm when it was performed in 2015 on stage at the Richard Rogers theater in New York City. I had heard about it many times from my friends and I had been to many musicals, but I didn’t really have enough interest to
Upon walking ‘into’ Into The Woods one would say the mood was set well. The red curtain in front of the proscenium stage, the orchestra tuning their instruments, and a peculiar man standing on the side of the stage. I was prepared for the show, a water bottle and plenty
The big bass I love to fish it is really fun. It is 1:00. I grab my fishing poles and my fishing bag. I get an my bike and ride down to my pound. Throw some bread on my hook and cast it out there. My brother said to bait the
If I'm in...I'll be All-In. While I'll be the first of family and friends to attend the University of Colorado, Boulder and unsure of the challenges within the campus community, I know myself. I am at my best when I fully commit.
I studied A Level music in college, less than a year ago. For one of our tasks, we had to work in a band, write a song together, and perform it. I was the singer, there was a guitarist, bassist, drummer, and a melodica player. As we had all come
