Today is our last dress rehearsal. Tomorrow the students perform James and the Giant Peach. I really enjoy taking pictures. So today I played professional photographer and took pictures during the run through. I was right up by the stage then five rows back standing on chair arms to get the shot I wanted. It was crazy fun. I took over 900 pictures today. Don’t worry- most will get thrown out because they’re blurry or have a bad angle of someone. It’s very hard to take pictures well in a theater. I set my camera the best I can and made some changes as I went. I think some of these are going to turn out great. I’m not on stage, but playing the role of photographer tonight lifted my spirits.
Today’s joy is the joy of playing a role.
