doin’ what comes naturally…

It really hit home yesterday that I’ll never have a kid acting on our school’s stage again. Gulp. A year ago, I was photographing Evan as the King of Siam, and while I take pictures of professional productions as well as our school’s shows, somehow this milestone clobbered me a bit. We’ve missed a lot of school lately (snow, exams, snow again) so the cast was working very, very hard yesterday (from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on a Sunday) just to prepare for the upcoming opening of “Annie Get Your Gun”–this was their first dress rehearsal.

The leads truly lit up the stage, and I’m confident they’ll be ready for opening night; more pictures to come, but I wanted to put up a couple now for luck.  I always love seeing a show for the first time through a lens instead of stuck in my seat. Seeing a kid’s eyes glow, watching them relax into a role and allow the character to emerge, is heightened when you’re photographing the show. Break a leg, guys!
