Some of my first nuggets.

They have been with me through it all. They were with me as we started vocal groups and as they grew and changed. They were with me when I did my first theater show. They were with me when I did my first high school shoes. They were with me as I hired them as teaching assistants.

I cannot even begin to express the love that I have for these two. As I am writing this, I am in tears knowing that next year they won’t be here. I am also so full of joy because I know that they are going to be fulfilling their passions and I can’t wait to see where their journey leads.

Keep shining bright! Both of you have been such a constant source of love and light in my life. I am always here for you and always will be. I love you both so very much and I am so incredibly proud of not only the artists that you have become but also the amazing young woman you have become.

Thank you for pouring into my life and into the lives of your students and your peers. 💜

TWO MORE CHANCES!!!!!! There has always been a stigma around the call for activism because activism means acknowledging that something in society needs to be fixed. Many people don’t realize that activism can occur through any medium. The upcoming performances of “The Laramie Project” this weekend illustrate exactly this. Do NOT miss this show!

Streaming tickets are STILL available:
Sunday, April 25th at 2:00 pm

“The Laramie Project” follows the reactions to the murder of Matthew Shepard by residents of the town in Wyoming where the murder occurred. It also follows the reactions of members of the Tectonic Theater Project who interviewed the residents and who originally created and performed the play.
Not only this, but the play is meant to convey his story. Matthew Shepard’s legacy, which his mother, Judy Shepard, continues to carry, is tragic but inspiring, as his story serves as a wake-up call to the violence and ignorance that surrounds social issues such as homophobia and discrimination.

As our students take on these emotional roles and create our version of such a story, they also have to keep in mind the message that they want to get across once this is over. That message is one of peace, acceptance, and activism through artistic voice.

Because the issues that are being addressed in the play are still so prevalent in today’s society, the cast members have to prepare to display such heart-wrenching and emotional scenes.

This is a play that should certainly be seen by everyone. The emotional performance will be sure to stun and inspire. The performance will be moving, not only content-wise, but because the actors and actresses in it have poured so much of themselves into their roles. The play is is for PG-13 audiences.

“The Laramie Project” is meant to send a message and there is no doubt that this performance will do exactly that.
