A Reflection on SummerStage 2009

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 3:45 pm

(by Priya Paranthaman, Charleston Stage’s Professional Resident Actor) Wow! I can’t believe SummerStage is over.  The past three weeks have been such an incredible and rewarding experience.  I was completely blown away by the talent and creativity of all the SummerStage participants.   When I arrived in Charleston, I had no idea what SummerStage was or what to expect.  I definitely was a little overwhelmed by the thought of having to help stage a full scale production with sixty-seven 2nd – 12th graders.  Even though I was a little timid, Marybeth knew exactly what to do.  She guided us, the resident actors, through the production process and transformed us into confident teachers and directors.The children sure made our job a lot easier.  They were so amazing to work with because everyone from the littlest chicken to the older leads, wanted to do their best.  Their enthusiasm and hard work sure paid off!  They were truly amazing on stage.I was so proud of each student and little sad when the show was over, but I do look forward to seeing some of them return for theatre school.  I’m so glad that I was able to be part of their magical experience.
