Every single person on this planet has at least one secret that could break your heart. If we could just remember that, there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world

CHS productions last performance of the year, Radium Girls, will open on april 22-25. This is one of the most powerful and moving productions I have ever been in. It is a historical drama about young girls who worked as painters for a radium company. They painted glow in the dark paint on watches for soldiers in WW2. As they painted the dials they would point the tips of their brushes with their lips. Over time the radium from the paint went into their bodies and poisoned them. This show focuses on the life of one of these girls named Grace Fryer. Grace takes action against the company that is neglecting to help her pay for medical bills and assume responsibility for her condition. The play teaches a great message about taking responsibility for ones actions, and how one persons determination can go a long way. This is one of those shows that could make you cry so if you like that kind of thing this is the show for you :) This show has a special meaning to me because it is my last performance at CHS. I have learned so much at this school and I'm getting ready to move on. This show has a great meaning to CHS as well as it is our director Alyn Bone's last year teaching at CHS. We're sad to see her go but we're so greatful for everything she has taught us. We want nothing more than to make her last show at CHS the best show she has ever done!

on the right track.

Pippin closed this weekend and I'm amazed by how quickly the time is going by. Did I seriously just finish my very last high school musical? I only have one more production (Radium Girls) before I have to move away to who knows where and pray that I've learned enough in these few short years to get through the next phaze in my life.

I auditioned for scholarships about a month ago (once again wow time is going fast) and I received scholarships to some smaller schools but I have more call back auditions to finish before I know for sure where I am headed. Its very scary not knowing where I'm going but I have goals and dreams that I intend on accomplishing and I feel like I am on the right track to obtaining those goals.
