BWW Blog: Joscelyne Tamburri - Latest Happenings
by Guest Blogger: Joscelyne Tamburri - Mar 24, 2017

After countless hours of rehearsal over many months, All That Jazz, our production with the Naden Band is officially over. I am so proud of our school and the Naden band-of the Royal Canadian Navy - thought I would clarify who they were) for the amazing 2 shows we put on. It's a strange thing to have something we have spent so long getting ready for to be over in just 1 day and now we are completely moving on, it feels all too sudden. That's showbiz I guess. I must admit the nights off since we are no longer rehearsing for the show are nice. Though, we won't be missing musical rehearsals for too long; we startDisney's Beauty and The Beast rehearsals Saturday! But, like I was saying, this is the last week of real school where we have our final handwritten assignments due (and a lot of them!).  It's nice to have those nights off to finish homework or get a few extra hours of sleep, even if we do miss rehearsals.
