It was a success!!! Seeing how excited and how happy the kids were absolutely made everything we did so worthwhile. While not all of the scholars showed up (I had to take on 2 different roles), the ones who did make their stage debut had the time of their lives! My absolute favorite scholar, Aziah, who played the part of Prospero, showed up late but stole the show! He was so worried about making sure that everyone was good and ready to go – it was the cutest thing ever!
I think the Cousins Studio Theater was the perfect amount of space for the performance, but the kids would have preferred being on an actual stage. It was amazing to see it all come together. I am excited to see how this project goes in the future!
