This year has been an amazing year of theatre for me. As an actress/actor, some years are better than others...y'know? We've all had those years when we ponder just why we chose this life for ourselves, why we continue to go for the dream roles, and land among the cameo roles. This year has been golden. It's one of those years that truly helps me remember why I stuck through the harder ones.
I've played all leads or supporting roles this years, and have been lucky enough to receive 3 awards for 2 of the roles. Winning All-State Cast was a really big deal for me, especially because I won it with a part that really touched my heart to play. It was one of those characters that you kind of wish you never had to stop playing. (Melissa/Necessary Targets). Then to receive "Best Actress in a One-Act" for the same role a few weeks ago (voted on by my schools drama club) really just capped it off. Then winning the "Best Supporting Actress" for Yente (Fiddler on the Roof) was just super fun. That show was a BLAST to do.
