BWW Blog: Emma VanDevelde - The Theatre That Raised Me
by Guest Blogger: Emma VanDeVelde - Jul 25, 2016

Last night at 501 Queens Road in Charlotte NC, the sound of laughter shattered the confines of the 13-row theater by transporting the audience into the world of 'The Drowsy Chaperone.' This musical, put on by Theatre Charlotte's Student Theatre Guild is the 5th STG musical and the 8th TC production I've had the privilege of being a part of. In August of 2009 my feet entered Theatre Charlotte's doors for the first time. I smelled its smell. I stood in its wings. I accepted its welcoming invitation to audition for those 13 empty rows-all for the very first time. Little did I know that this audition for 'Annie' would mark the beginning of a beautiful relationship between a little girl with a dream and a little white theater awaiting a dream to foster. Little did I know that this smell would become my haven, these wings would become my comfort and this tiny theater would become my own little corner of the world. (more...)
