I am an actress. I know what you're thinking...great, another ambitious teen star ready to sweep the face of Disney Channel act awhile then make my own band. Not me. I am really honest when I say that I love what I do: theatre and I find no more joy in anything than acting. It is this unpredictable, warming, wonderous thing that, well, I am not good at giving justice to with a list of adjectives.
What I can say is this is an art I thrive off of and it makes up a great deal of who I am.
AND there is this one place where that is okay. It is encouraged.
This place, so dear to me, is First Stage Children's Theater Academy. If only you could experience it...I wish absolutely everyone could. The people are just stellar human beings and the work is always a challenge and a joy. What more could a girl, or anyone, ask for?
Well, this incredible place is presenting the opportunity to a group of us high schoolers, members of the graduate-level training program, to go to Utah, beautiful Utah, to do Shakespeare in the mountains.
We will be competing at the Utah Shakespeare Festival this coming October. What will happen is we will perform a variety of Shakespeare's works in hopes of some helpful critique and, even more, having some time with great works of theatre-a grand treat for actors.
This trip is a pretty magnificent thing. It gives us a taste of independence, a breath of fresh air in a stunning place, and new challenges and triumphs as blooming actors.
It is your kindness and generosity that will help make this happen for us. Oh, and we would so greatly appreciate it.
Every little bit is important and honored as important, to us. I realize it is not the easiest of times, I very much understand that. Therefore, whatever you have to spare and are willing to send our way is just wonderful. Heck! I think a penny would be pretty special-- a little act of kindess means more than its size.
Thank you, Thank you.
Peace and love,
