Personally, I’m not a traditional “drama kid”. I’ve never been in plays or musicals though I’ve always enjoyed watching both. I’ve been in band since middle school, so the stage isn’t unfamiliar to me, but I’ve never been good at talking in front of people. While Drama I allowed me opportunities to perform in front of the class, Drama II and Musical Theatre allowed me the opportunity to perform on the stage with a real audience. Recently, McCracken County High School held the “Spring Spotlight” (formerly known as Spring Showcase). This allowed our musical theatre class a chance on the stage, which I consider a valuable experience. And, as Facebook reminded me, at Spring Showcase last year, I got a chance to perform a duet scene. This time on the stage is a unique experience. There’s no feeling that compares to looking into an audience and portraying a character, whether you’re singing or speaking and knowing you’re getting to tell these people your character’s story with every move and expression you make. And though few things are more terrifying, few things are more thrilling.

    Watching live performances is also an incredible experience. I recently took a friend to see her first play. This is something all high schoolers should participate in before you graduate. Spring spotlight showcases some of the incredible talent that this school has. We have an amazing drama program, but this allows individuals in drama and dance classes to shine. We had an extremely successful exhibition this year, and you should all go to see next year’s Spring Spotlight. It’s something you won’t want to miss.
