Shortly before the new year, Alpha surprised us by trying out for a part in drama club – High School Musical. She made it into the supporting cast.
For months she has stuck to a busy schedule of rehearsals in between school, karate, and regular activities, mostly without complaint. (though not entirely ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) She tried really hard, though.
Tonight was opening night, and the whole show was fantastic – Alpha was great, but the rest of the show was great too. No disasters, not even a missed line, and the leads had really strong voices. It felt more like a high school production than middle school. Most importantly, the kids really looked like they were having fun (especially the kid who played ‘Ryan’).
Next year the high school is going to see some great singing talent come in. And Alpha? She’s talking about trying out for the next show.
