Six years ago I started classes and day camps at Grand Rapids Civic Theater (GRCT). This summer I did Senior Theater Arts Day Camp. That was really fun because we made our costumes and used real zombie make-up. I was in the real GRCT play, Barefoot in the Park, as a Santini Brother and crew member.
I have done musicals in middle school and high school. I was in Schoolhouse Rock Live Junior, and I was the Guitar Man in Bye Bye Birdie. I go to Drama Club meetings, and I am in the crew for the plays. For two summers I have also gone to The Young Americans day camp and performed in the show.
I was in all of the DSAWM plays, and being Peter Pan was my favorite. This summer I performed in Down With Improv with No Outlet Improv and our Peter Pan: Adventures In Neverland director, Miss Eirann. I donated the money I made to DSAWM.
This summer I was a theater assistant for GRCT’s Theater Arts Day Camp. I liked helping teach other kids to be on stage or backstage crew. I was also the assistant stage manager for the show, and I had fun telling cues to the crew. I like theater because I meet new cast members, do new things and have fun.
