Finale: Opening Night No.1: 4/15/2024

Alex H -

This past week was the opening night of Urinetown at East Valley High School. I can safely say that it was a smashing success. It’s been fun seeing BASIS students and current and former teachers attending the first performances to support their friends. This week as credited stage manager, I was hit with an incredible new duty: cleaning the toilet paper in between shows. Yeah, it’s a thankless job but someone’s got to do it. This week we’re moving to the Mesa Arts Center. I have also returned to rehearsals for Beauty and the Beast.

I’ve successfully managed to finish the first draft of my show. I’ll admit it, I was very stressed about the writing process this week. The way I was able to deal with it was quite simple. I cut up everything I had and placed it on the floor in order to better move it around and see what order worked. I’ve sent it off to several trusted individuals to give feedback.

I would also like to present to you the official invitation to my presentation of my one man show. I hope you’ll all be able to make it. See you for the final week!


I hope you can make it!The invite
