OUR ONE ACT PLAY ONE FIRST PLACE AT REGION!!!
Today was our competition: we performed at eight in the morning, on home stage, and at 3:30 were called up to receive our FIRST PLACE TROPHY. On top of that… I WAS THE RECIPIENT OF BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS!
Today has been fantastic.
We beat out four other schools, including our huge One Act nemesis (who will go unnamed less someone from that school chooses to harass me for kicking their asses). I’ve bawled my eyes out on two different occasions and almost puked right before we went on, but when you weigh that against the amazing oneness I felt with the rest of the cast when Logan got onto Allstars, I won BSA, Luke got Best Actor, and we WON…
New memory to add to the list of favorites: when the timekeeper called our nemesis for second place and we all gripped each other’s hands tighter and burst into tears because we knew, we knew, that we’d won first place.
We have a tradition of going to Applebees after our last musical performance in the spring, and whenever possible we also go after winning region, if we compete on home stage. It’s an absolute BLAST. We were all surfing on the high of our win and everyone felt so connected, and so incredibly overjoyed. Garrett and his twin, Carver, showed up and I got to spend one of the best nights of my life with my boyfriend. 🙂
AGH I still can’t process how amazing today was…
