For the LSOH productions i personally enjoyed being a part of the crew, it was fun to help build, be behind the scenes, working with such a wonderful cast. we all are a big family. As a crew member my highlight of that position would have to be working with props, getting to restore and name the plants was a lot of fun and neat little thing to add for the Behind the scenes.
A big challenge was trying not to crack under pressure under a specific time frame, and managing every rehearsal/show.
Working as a part of the crew for LSOH this year has been one heck of an experience. Like any show, big or small there are ups and downs. Although we aren't shown we have a huge part in this production and we could't have done it without one another. The stress and worrying was all worth it because at the last showing I looked around at all the crew members and actors and knew we had made something amazing.
From auditions to the last curtain call, it was a roller coaster ride for the entire cast. It was rough at times building the puppets and painting sets, but it was spectacular to see the finished product be a success. The best part about it was the new friendship that developed throughout the process and being able to rely on these people. Simply being on stage with these amazing people is what made the production worth while. It was great to have another school come watch that did the same production and have them say nothing but great things about our performances. This is one part of high school that I will dearly miss next year.
(10/10 would recommend Theater 2)
In LSOH I was in the cast. I was in the ensemble and played various roles as well. This whole experience was extremely fun and I made a lot of new friends during this. I also learned what it was like to be part of a production. A big challenge was trying not to look nervous onstage because I was very nervous offstage. I hope more people continue to do theatre because of all these new experiences.
This show was very nerve wracking but fun for me. It was my first time auditioning with a song. I did not get a part in the cast but I did become the stage manager. Once Mr. Hanks started staging the cast I was in charge of making sure the set was built. The set was essentially the crews baby, and I could not ask for a better crew. During building the set they all put 100% in and made the show come to life. During the show everyone did their job every night and we had no problems. For my first time being stage manager I can say that it was a complete success and a lot of fun.
LSOH was an experience I will never forget, I was never actually on the stage for this performance but I learned how to do almost everything that goes on behind the scenes of these wonderful performances.I personally had to rearrange my whole schedule to be able to attend all the rehearsals and shows, I sacrificed most of my swim practices and coaching opportunities through out the process but it was definitely worth it. I got a lot closer to my class and we hang out all the time now, and I can't wait until our next show, and I am sad to see our seniors leave. I would absolutely recommend theatre 2 to anyone who wants to be more outgoing and wants a second family.
Being a part of both crew and cast was an interesting experience which allowed me to see two different perspectives of the same show. Everyone in cast was working just as hard as the crew and it was amazing seeing the chemistry build over time. This was the most fun we have had preparing and performing for a play.
For this year's musical, Little Shop of Horrors, I found myself working not on the stage but behind it. I decided to work as crew, a much different experience for me. I spent time with many others working hard to put the show together. I got firsthand experience painting sets, making accessories for the actors to wear, and working angles backstage to make the story come alive. Stress almost always comes with large productions like these but I did not let it stop me from having a good time and aiding all these talented people in putting on an amazing show. :)
Although I did not audition for the show, I was thankful enough to be apart of the crew and being the costume lead for this show. At first it was fun being around with each other and after a while things did break down, but in the end our hard work on the show really paid off. Playing around with the costumes was fun. the sextext and Seymour were my favorite outfits to put on. The fun part about the show was getting the audience's reaction to the show. Once the cast and crew got a reaction from the audience, we all were satisfied and continued to do our best to improve all of our performances and be as perfect as possible. The hard part about the show was tearing down the stage. It took us only about an hour but we spent a month and a half building everything and getting them prepared from the show. I will have this musical stuck in my head for maybe a month or so now that we are done. Even with the drama backstage I'm glad it came out as a success and most of all good job to the cast!
Our biggest performance yet! Everyone magically came together and pulled it off. It was so nice to see the effort and attention put into this!!
Where do I even begin! This play was such a blast to be a part of and was a great experience for me. It was quite the thing to see how far we have come from auditions to now. We have our amazing crew to thank for the set and our wonderful actors for the performance, but it couldn't have been done without everyone. Even if there were a few mishaps, we rolled with the punches and still put on an amazing show. At first I wasn't happy about having to stay at the Bryte campus late every day, but after a while it wasn't bothersome anymore, what with all the amazing and funny and talented people around me. It was a huge accomplishment and my first leading debut, and I'm glad this play and these people were the ones to put me through it all!
Good experience, would recommend. I kinda wanted to be in the cast, but due to conflicts, I was put on crew by default. But I must say, I really enjoyed the experience of organizing and creating the props for the show. I think it was really good for me being on crew. Just a really beneficial experience, ya feel? It was really fun working with everyone and knowing what's happening before everyone else does. Plus I think the cast did a really good job and the songs are great. So thanks everyone for everything I guess. Much love. :)
Also, the music is going to be and already has been stuck in my head for a very long time. So, I'll definitely never forget what we've done. Can't wait for next year!
for LSOH this was my first time participating in one of the musicals as a crew member. it was fun building the props and helping everyone else with what they needed help with. the highlight of me being a crew member is being the usher and greeting people. i also took surveys during intermission and the dentist is the most popular character. overall the show was amazing.
Last year, I did "Once On This Island" with RCHS Productions and this musical "Little Shop Of Horrors" was completely different. Whereas that was magical this was more of a sci-fi.
I was very nervous for auditions when I heard we had to sing in front of everyone not just Ms. Cristman and Mr. Hanks. But I realized, that was my big step into being what I am now.
At the very first meeting, I got to see everyone who was going to be in the musical. I knew many people. But I also didn't know a couple. What I did know, the ice breakers we did was so much fun and it was our first steps into becoming the family we are now.
As a puppeteer I didn't do a whole lot until we got to Bryte and was able to use our vines for the show. I actually enjoyed being a plant, I was on stage for the whole of Act II but was in the shadows. It helped me be more comfortable on stage and I feel like I've improved with my acting by just whacking people with my vine. With other cast members, I've sang several songs just for the fun of it. And I feel more confident with my singing even though I didn't have to sing at all for the shows. I feel like I can express myself more by first working on my body language.
There were some hiccups here and there where I had to cancel rehearsals because I wasn't feeling very well. And I cracked under stress with balancing my dance, and Chinese school, and lion dance practice and performances. But I made it out in the end and I feel strong and more time manageable. I know what to cut out due to priorities and I can handle more.
I really enjoyed my time with this musical and all the people I've met. They all spent their time and energy to this musical. Without any of them, "Little Shop Of Horrors" would've never happened. Thank you to all of you!
Everything about this was so fun! I'm so happy to have been a part of it. From rehearsals to prop making, it was the best.
This show was a great experience and I'm grateful to have been able to work with such an amazing cast and crew. I was hesitant at first about being a puppeteer, but it was so much fun and I'd do it again. Everything about this show was so much fun, but the best part was getting to watch as everyone pushed their boundaries and their confidence grew. This show has really solidified my love for theatre and how great of an experience it is. :)
LSOH was an awesome show to get to work on, both offstage and on. It was our biggest cast and crew yet! I think that it was a great experience for me personally. I was able to practice singing and dancing at the same time, which is not the easiest task. Thankfully the dancing wasn't super intense haha! This was also my last big high school production so it's a bitter sweet moment. It's a memory that I will forever have. Thank you Mr. Hanks for being my awesome theatre teacher for the past two years! I will miss it!
This Musical helped me learn how to be more responsible and i learned how to manage time more wisely. This production was super fun, because I got to meet so much new and amazing people. I loved working on my acting and on my vocals. Honestly LSOH was an incredible experience and if i had to do it again i wouldn't hesitate.
Being a part of the LSOH cast was an unforgettable experience. I had the opportunity to see and learn new things that iv never been able to do in my life. Being in LSOH allowed me to open up not only as an actress, but also as a person. I bonded with people who brought out the best in me and who motivated me to come to rehearsals every day with a clean mind set to start over and try even harder than the day before. The cast and crew both definitely have a place in my heart.I would recommend Theater 2 to anyone who wants to find a place to grow into someone bigger and to find family.
As Little Shop of Horrors was presented to us, we all walked into a room, meeting each other, becoming excited to give birth to this play, as a crew this year I was able to see both points of view on how the play was able to come to life, such a great experience and memories that was built between the cast and crew. With all the hard work we all did, it payed off making a amazing musical, Good Job to everyone!
From the beginning this was fun, I've met new people and seen new things. I've never had theater experience and I'm glad this show was my first. Everything from the cast to the puppets were awesome, there were things I've could have never guessed that go into a production like this. I started work on the plants in its third stage, I had difficulties but this show encouraged me to find new ways to problem solve.but once we got to performing, that's a whole different ball game. We have to build the set, transport the giant plant, the flats that create the shop and all the little props that go into the show. Our first performance was fun, I was nervous that everything would go well. but when we got to the end, everyone knew their lines and the puppet was synced with the voice actor. the entire process is awesome and one I'm intrigued by, its been fun and I know that the shows can only get better.
Auditioning, rehearsing and performing this musical with this cast has been one of the most entertaining and genuinely exciting experiences of my high school life so far. The challenges only made this a hurdle I was more determined to tackle. Thank you to the cast and directors for bringing us closer as a cast and as friends. This was incredibly humbling and beyond interesting. Little Shop Of Horrors will forever be more to me than just a stage show.
I just wanna say...THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!!! This has been one of the best things I have done in my life that I very much enjoyed and loved doing. I met new people and made great friends. Also at times it was a bit stressful, but everyone got through the hard times with each others support. I will definitely be missing this class a lot and I am super glad I had the opportunity to be a part of it. Thank you!Thank you! Love y'all!
Little Shop Of Horrors was an AMAZING experience. Being able to have a part in the musical was crazy! I was so shy and I felt like I wouldn't be able to do my parts. I eventually came out of my shell and I became so comfortable with everyone. I'm grateful to have been able to work to with cast and crew. Everyone grew close and encouraged each other to do better. This experience really boosted my confidence and I'm very happy that I took my chance to be in the musical! Without everyone, we wouldn't have been able to make this musical happen. Thank You Everyone!! I LOVE YOU ALL!
This year's production of LSOH was a memorable one for sure. I met new people, and learned new things. The experience overall was a good one.
Overall, I'm really glad that I was a part of the musical. It was a great experience getting to know everyone and how everything worked. Performing in the musical has convinced me to continue acting or being in more RCHS productions. While I'm sad that this was the seniors' last high school musical, it was a great first for me and the other freshmen :)
Little Shop of Horrors started of as an idea with big plans. Plans that haven't been thought of. Details only an investigator wouldn't miss. In the beginning, everyone was getting situated. Understanding what needs to be done and how it'll be done. The cast had dedicated a lot of their time to refining their skills. From voices that can be felt, not only heard. To movements that caused the characters to come alive. To improve on the gold standard. Not only to be a great show, but the best show this year. Along with these great actors, came a beautifully designed set. Nothing was bare. The walls decorated with color and life. The floor surrounded by plants that not only, they belonged. Furniture that didn't clutter any spots and complemented the aesthetic. However, the lights, music and the audience gave the show it's atmosphere. Lights changing in the right moment, representing the mood the scene is giving. Music and effects adding on to the intensity. Little Shop of Horrors had big plans, and they executed those big plans and expanded on them.
When I first auditioned for LSOH I didn't think I would get a part in it. Then I missed callbacks because I had the flu, and I REALLY thought I wouldn't get a part. When I checked the cast list a few weeks later, I had found out that I got the part as Audrey's understudy. I was super happy, when I found this out. The thing I struggled with the most was honestly the rehearsal times. Not because the timing was wrong, just because I had stuff going on at home that required me to be there after a while. Over all, this was a great experience, it was great playing a character I don't relate to at all because I gained a lot of experience.
Working as a crew member for LSOH was an unforgettable experience. I learned many things while helping to build the puppets, such as more hot glue is always the right answer. I discovered how essential teamwork is in a production and how every second counts during rehearsals. Watching the show's success after all our hard work was the greatest feeling. The family made while working on this show is one I hold dear and I'm glad I could be a part of this production.
Being involved in the production of Little shop of horrors was a fun experience.I learned a lot and met a lot of people.Overall I had a great time with great people.
This production by far has to be my favorite show. From the set to the story and characters. During auditions I originally wanted to play the role of the dentist, but the role of Mushnik grew on me. I was skeptical of the character at first but, after realizing the number of lines he has and how amazing his songs are, I enjoyed the role. After this production I can say I've gotten closer to a majority of the people in drama. They are the positive crowd I needed to surround myself with. We as a drama class have come such a long way from day one.
Sweeps to sweep.
DOOR all my life I've always been door. I keep asking God what I'm door, and he tells me gee, I'm not DOOR. Sweep that door kid! Oh! I started life as a DOORphan, a child of the streets. Here on Skid DOOR. He took me in, gave me shelter, a door, crust of door, and a door. Treats me like door. Calls me a door... which I aaaaaamm. . .
Being in this production has been one of if not THE best experience of my life. Getting to work with so many awesomely talented people, making new friends and working towards a common goal with all of them is such an accomplishment. Auditioning for this musical actually did take some convincing from my friends due to how actually nervous I was and how new I was (and still am) to the whole performance thing but I am so beyond glad that I did. This had put me in such a good place and I look forward to so many more future shows. Thanks to everybody who helped me out along the way.
