Mia T. gave a polished performance as Hero in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing at Loyola University. It made us very proud to watch you flex your acting muscles in such a terrific show written by a master of theater.
Zoe T. really got into the habit as a member of the Ensemble for Sister Act at Mundelein High School. You put in a lot of hard work to earn your place in the production and we expect bigger and better things for you in the next show.
Faith R. really did shine as Mrs. Sheinkopf in the Warren Township High School production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock, The Musical. It’s not easy for a young lady to play an uptight middle-aged private school teacher, but you had us convinced! Brava!
Maeve O. got cast in the Ensemble in Lincoln Middle School’s production of Legally Blonde. Congratulations on getting into the show! We’re very proud of the progress you’ve made in such a short time with us. Keep up the great work!
Logan F. wore multiple hats (ears?) in Point2Productions’ presentation of Shrek: The Musical, as a member of the Ensemble and The Big Bad Wolf. Then he turned right around and strapped on his sandals as a Disciple in the CTE / Fox Valley Theatre Company production of Godspell. We love your enthusiasm for the work, but don’t forget to come up for air!
Ken K. was a featured soloist in the Lake Zurich Village Singers Spring concert. In “I’ve got a dream” from Disney’s Tangled, he sang the part of the dreaded (but hilarious) Hook Hand. Then he paired up for a duet version of the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” Talk about flexibility! Great job!!!
Emma L. was one of 30 students chosen from 150 who tried out to participate in her elementary school talent show. Her “Caro mio ben” was chosen to be the finale of the show!! She was also asked to sing Schubert’s “Ave Maria” and the title song from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” at a wedding. From what we hear, you did a wonderful job! Congratulations, Emma!!!
Valerie and Jamie B. participated in the Ups for Downs’ production of Arsenic and Old Lace. Valerie played Mortimer and Jamie played Mr. Gibbs in Act 1 and Abbey in Act 3. So very proud of you both for challenging yourself with difficult plays. BRAVA!
Annie C. graduated from Adlai Stevenson High School with multiple scholarship offers from some top schools. No matter where you choose to go or what course of study to begin, we’re so very proud of you!
As always, we’d like to say that our students participate in so many diverse activities that we couldn’t possibly keep track of them all. We’re very proud of each and every one of you for all if the interesting things you do at school and in your communities. You may not realize the happiness it can bring to others to see you share your gifts and talents. We hope you all continue to share as much as you can share as often as you can share it! Thank you for sharing your talents with us each week!!!
