Teenage Theater

with one comment

             A year or so ago I went to go the Broadway performance of Peter Pan here in Houston at Theatre Under the Stars. It was fun, good performance, and I overall liked it. But just a few days ago I went to see my Westchester’s (my high school)performance. I LOVED it! I went with my good friend Catie on a Friday night. We had a blast. We got there early enough to sit in the very front row! Our friend Lexi was in the performance. We were so excited to see all of our friends. The sets, though high schooler made were awesome, the homemade costumes looked like a professionals and the school that doesn’t even have an orchestra class held an amazing musical!

           The enthusiasm inspired me, all the performers were so proud of themselves. We even had a flying rig going. Because there were only 6 or so performances and the only people who really came were students, all the performers did their best. On the big Broadway performances there’s hundreds of shows and you don’t know a soul in the crowd. So sure you may be paid and it may be a “better” performance but that’s not always true. Everyone says teens are so lazy, all they do is watch T.V. But that enthusiasm can’t be surpassed.
