So, here’s the thing: We have our annual day coming up.
It’s basically this day where all the students put up this huge play, with songs, dances, the works and there’s this totally original script. Performing on the final day is always really incredible because the energy and enthusiasm in the air is contagious, but what’s even more incredible than that is the process of putting up our ‘big show’!
We have these crazy moments where people do stupid things and make the whole crew crack up, or times where nobody gets their dialogues right because of the uncontrollable fits of laughter, or even those time when our director (a senior teacher) loses her cool and yells at us, bringing us back to the serious dialogue delivery and all that jazz. Well, the point of it all is that we just work together, in sync, to do something for each other and in turn for ourselves. Obviously there are a few people who bring everybody down because of their disinterest and there are days where rehearsals seem like a total bore because naturally everyday is not a party. But when I look at the whole picture those few annoying days are worth bearing when I have the most amazing memories to compare them with.
Rehearsals aren’t exactly killing me but I’m surely going to be murdered because of the pressure of my upcoming exams, projects and homework! But, whatever people may say, practicing for this show is time well spent!
As for the ugly ties and awkward smiles..that’s for the crew to understand. A drama too difficult to explain!
