I helped run the Playwrights Initiative's Public Reading Series (readings of new, unfinished plays written by resident and visiting playwrights), and also read for two of those plays. I served as "page-turner" at the season kick-off event, the Broadway in the Blue Ridge Concert, and also at the premiere reading of Unearthed, a new musical and work in development by Endstation Theatre Company.
I ushered for Big River, delivered season materials to local businesses, and helped gather information on musicals to be considered for next year's season. And lastly, I was privileged to attend master classes on scene study, voice, movement, marketing/auditioning, and script analysis.
I have grown in many ways this summer, and have also realized some personal things that will prove very useful - things like my new-found love of acting (I thought I enjoyed it before, but now I really know how much I love it, and I want more, to dive in even deeper), my passion for music (which has really been with me since I was born) and how much I need to be around it, how much I truly miss dancing every day, and my need to be doing all three together and at the same time. I really, deeply know that musical theatre is where I'm most fulfilled because I get to do all three.
