Megan C. was superior as Juliet in Reynolds High School's presentation of Romeo & Juliet. She twisted her ankle during dress rehearsal week and needed her dress to be a bit shorter than the other frocks the actresses were wearing. It helped to not trip her up as she had to scale all the high risers onstage.
Zach Speer as Juliet's father gave an emotive performance in his acting debut. Maybe it's just the red hair that gave credence to his fiery performance, but it was the needed spark before intermission.
Daddy Warbaggs was at Opening Night of Annie, cheering on his favorite orphan!
All my girls were together for the Saturday evening performance of Annie. They described the scenes in the orphanage as "just like home!"
Hannah loved being the orphan, July, whose character description is the "quietest" orphan, but we all know better. She was sassy and spunky, a real fun role for her. She tap danced with these four girls (Ellie C., Hannah W., Hannah B., and Anne J.) who received the "rhythm" award at the strike party for their lively rendition of Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile, supported by a cast of 14 additional orphans.
Hannah and Alli O. became good pals during the rehearsals and run of the show. Their older siblings went to high school together so they knew about each other years before they had this opportunity to be in a play together. It was a great experience and memory for both of them!
