Hey all, I've been all sorts of MIA this week, sorry about that! My work computer is currently being fixed in Memphis, so I had to bring my home computer into work with me, which means I don't have a computer at home to take care of things at night! I've been busy at work...you know, yadda yadda yadda. I'm just going to call this week a wash, but not before sharing the below video.
This past weekend, I went back to my High School alma mater to see their spring musical, Phantom of the Opera. Little Known Fact: I have seen every single spring musical at my High School since graduating TEN years ago (except for one!!) That's 9 shows! The shows get more and more impressive each year. From Les Miserables, to Beauty and the Beast, to Aida, When I tell people "Yea, I'm going home to see my High School's spring musical this weekend" I'm usually met with a raised eyebrow and an:
"Oh...that sounds dreadful."
But no, you don't understand: These High School shows are better than some of the National Touring productions I've seen. It's absolutely astounding the talent that comes from these kids and the school. I loved participating in the theater productions when I was in High School. Most of my fondest memories took place in the theater program, and it was where I spent pretty much every waking moment outside of my classes. Our shows were very impressive back then, but they've gone to a whole new level in the past 10 years. I don't think I'd even be able to make the ensemble if I went to this school now!
I have never heard a high school boy/man...manchild? sing the way this Phantom did - he sounded like a 30 year old man! All of the singers, the set, the costumes, and everything were beyond impressive! If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself.
