As our students and their parents will already be aware, I’ve finally joined the studio full time, beginning on January 1st. Besides now being available to students six days a week, this also means that I’m dedicated to attending as many student performances as possible within that schedule.
How fortunate it was for me, then, that the first performance to crop up this month was Amherst Leisure Services Community Theater’s Les Miserables, featuring a large number of our students in both featured and ensemble roles.
Congratulations to our students: Milena Gravante-Gunnells (Young Cosette), Carina Gravante-Gunnells (Gavroche), Jack Mulvaney (Marius), Sage Wilson (Combeferre), Laura Borash (Factory Girl), Emmet Anderson, Stephen Atkinson, Eliza Carson, Chloe Castro-Santos, Stephanie Craven, Brandon Dallmann, Anna Plummer, and Meagan Raker!
So great was my pride in these students’ performances, I thought my heart would burst from my chest. Thanks to all for making my inaugural full-time month in the studio so enjoyable!
