I’ve been watching Moorhead High Theatre productions for years and they never cease to amaze me. I never think that they can top the previous show, but they always manage to do it. The moment I walked into Moorhead High School, I knew I had to be a part of this program.
The audition process was one of the most stressful times in my life. As a freshman, I had no idea what to expect. It was all worth it when I found out I would be a part of this year’s show. Coming in the first day, I had no idea what I was walking into. I was, and still am, a scared little freshman in a new school, but I have never felt more welcomed. In my opinion, theatre people are the best people in the world. Everyone is so accepting, supportive, and unique. I often find myself looking forward to rehearsal. It’s two hours away from homework, tests, and other stresses of life. This show has been different from the other shows I’ve been in especially during E.M. break. We have cleaned, blocked, and choreographed numerous scenes. All that sounds really boring, and sometimes it is, but we have also played games, had dance parties, and have gotten to know each other. So far, this experience has been one I will never forget. My advice to the future freshman is to be confident and team up as much as you can. There’s so much to soak up in an award-winning program like this. Overall, I think I speak for all freshmen in the show when I say that I am so happy I have had the opportunity to experience such a great program.
