This week in our little Center Stage group it finally became clear what we were working towards. Not a big fancy revue or even a recital, but a presentation of our work: a work in progress.And I finally gave in to what I have never given into before, and put some of my quiet little ones on mic. It is going to make them hear-able and in this way we can concentrate now of getting their little pieces ready for performance rather than my always stopping them to say that I can’t hear them. I want them to be comfortable at this point, and relax into what their performance is going to be.
It is really quite charming, the way they have taken to their work. I am very proud of them. I will talk to the audience about how the show is going to be a demonstration of what we have been working on, rather than a finished product, and not to be concerned if they see me stop and work with the kids during the evening. And this way it will be a chance to show the families how we all work together to create a production, and hopefully our methods will shine and the parents will understand this way how the goal is always to foster growth and confidence in the children, rather than to showcase their specific talents. And those talents will, I am sure, shine through as well.
This week saw our heroine pounding the pavement yet again looking to match her talents along with her dreams and wishes for the children of Columbia to the hopes and goals of an arts oriented child loving community resource!
And guess what? I
had a very fun meeting at the Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission where I met and chatted with somebody who seemed very excited about perhaps helping find the part of the puzzle that has been missing: A venue for our shows! The ICRC has been approached by Midlands Tech, where they have a new theatre in great need of a resident company.
We are a company in need of a theatre to be the residents of.
Sounds like a match made in heaven, doesn’t it?
