Earlier this month I had the pleasure of taking Fredi Walker-Browne's three day workshop at my school, the OCVTS: Performing Arts Academy. Being able to take such an informative class on the entertainment world was eye opening and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to take this class at my school as both a freshman and senior. When learning about show business and casting I found myself reflecting on how big the performance world is, and how thankful I am to be apart of such a crazy yet thrilling field. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Jessica Vanek - March 27, 2017

Jess here.  I recently saw my first show at Cockroach Theatre, a well-established theatre company located here in Las Vegas.  SPINNING INTO BUTTER by Rebecca Gilman exposes current social issues through an honest story that could, in reality, have taken place in Anywhere, USA.  This play dealt with concepts not normally portrayed on a stage, and delivered a powerful punch that left the audience enlightened.  The story is set at fictional Belmont College in Vermont, and explores racial issues that college campuses sometimes face.  The show begins with Sarah Daniels, a Dean who is trying to get a student to lie about his ethnicity so he will be a stronger candidate for a scholarship.   She does this with the best intentions, but it's not taken well by the student, Patrick Chibas.  Meanwhile Simon (a character in name only), an African-American student attending the predominantly white Belmont College, reports a series of hate crimes being inflicted upon him.  Dean Daniels along with two other Deans struggle to fix the issue, yet against Dean Daniels' better judgment, decide that a campus-wide forum is the best way to remedy the situation.  Ultimately, the forum is a huge failure, and results in more of a divide than it began with.  Dean Daniels continues to try to do what's right, but struggles with the process due to her subconscious racism.  This story discusses the complexity of race and discrimination and how, despite the outlawing of segregation, America still struggles to treat all races equally.

With one final set of bows, the second and final weekend of Honk the Musical has come to an end.

Last week, Cinderella at UHS observed two snow days delaying our rehearsal process but allowing us time to individually delve into our material.  Watching videos, reviewing intentions and developing our characters are what will bring our magical performance together. Once the company was reunited, we made up for lost time with our scenic elements. As each stroke of the paint brush is completed, it is apparent in how gorgeous it will truly be.  (more...)

Cinderella continues to surprise me with the lessons I learn each and every day. In a musical, the story is the language. Lyrics are a stunning collection of words that advance the plot in a brilliant way. This week, I have dug deep into my lyrics and have fallen in love with its passionate message. I am so intrigued by the depth of this language and its power to share a universal ideal. Everyone goes through a time when they doubt themselves. Everyone has felt like the world is against them. Finding the confidence within you is one of many beautiful themes that this show embodies. (more...)
