Being a part of the Summer Repertory Theater is a wonderful learning experience. It’s truly fascinating to learn from my fellow cast members and tech team, especially when it comes to their past experiences in the arts.
One person who comes to mind right away is our choreographer, Chris Carter. One of my favorite parts of rehearsals would have to be the time we spend dancing with him. Working with Mr. Carter is a remarkable experience. He’s a very talented and humorous man, and it’s an honor to work with him every day.
On the 5th of July, the cast was excited to work with Chris once again and to celebrate his birthday. Before rehearsal began, however, we learned that one of his family members had passed away. Our hearts felt broken for our beloved dance instructor, so the cast of Dancing Princesses sent him a video of us singing “Happy Birthday.”
Chris remains in our hearts and will always be a part of our theatre family. Our prayers are with him and we can’t wait to dance again.
Michael will be playing Claus in Dancing Princesses, his first production at GRCT.
