Missing high school musical productions
November 15, 2009 - Pam Rodgers
Over the weekend I visited my sister in Chariton and went with her as she supported her students in their rendition of "Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat." I thought the students did a good job putting on the performance, and I was thoroughly entertained. I have to admit that it made me miss my own high school days of being in a musical production. The amount of work that is put in before the show goes on, the excitement the day of the first performance and the hope that you can put on a great show to capture the audience. I had the opportunity to be in three musicals and four plays. It took me back to being a nun in the “Sound of Music,” teaming up with my twin sister to split the minstrel part in “Once Upon a Mattress” and my most cherished musical moment when I played the lead character Milly in “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” It was a great experience and something about high school I truly miss and have never had the opportunity to do again. I am glad I was able to see other high school students enjoying what I have missed from my high school days.
