Drama Thing

I’m glad Hanah and Jasmine told me about this event, because it was very enjoyable. If they hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have known about it. There might have been and probably were announcements, but I didn’t hear them. Anyways, I promised Hanah that I’d go easy, and Jasmine wanted to make sure I know that it was put together in a week. There were a few performances that weren’t very good, but a lot that were.
Erin’s keyboard playing wasn’t great, but it was nice, and I’m glad she performed. There was a “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” skit that did not show great skill but was very funny nonetheless. There were probably a lot more, but I’m having a hard time remembering the performances now. Three performances do stand out in my mind.
The first is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This was a musical, and I enjoyed it very much. Jasmine performed beautifully as always, although her character’s name escapes me. I actually wonder if she was hurt at all when thrown to the ground, because it looked very realistic. Mike Iinuma also performed very well. He’s one of the few drama members whom I don’t know but look forward to seeing perform. Plus, he’s pretty good-looking. You know I’m not the only straight guy to think so.
Jan Reside played a song on an acoustic guitar and sang. I can’t remember the song, and I guess there isn’t much to say about his performance. However, I thought he was really good.
The third performance was Ryan and Christina. I don’t know the name of what they were performing, but they sang about killing people, cooking the victims, and selling/eating them. It was a sort of morbid topic but very funny. They both did well.
And I know I said three stuck out, but I’m going to mention one more because, well, I just remembered it. The sunburned Hanah sang near the end. She’s a beautiful singer, and her singing to herself after the performance was even nice.
Sorry I didn’t use more names. That’s what happens when I’m not given a program! Thank you CAMS Drama for everything you’ve given to me. Good luck to its current senior members in college, and good luck current underclassmen (although I don’t think any of them are WebPageless readers) in future years of drama at CAMS.

    Ok, I’m doing the annoying, comments-by paragraph thing:
    Yay for one week of prep! (It gave me and Jasmine an excuse to ditch the last day of ‘classes.’) BTW, Jasmine was Lucy.
    Mike is s*xy; we all know it. He’s also probably the best actor at CAMS in terms of characterization.
    Ryan and Tina sang “A Little Priest” from Sweeney Todd, a show I recommend to anyone with amorbid sense of humor. It follows a song I really love: “There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit and it’s filled with people who are filled with shit and the vermin of the world inhabit it, but not for long. They all deserve to die…..”
    I love you, Peter! ^_^

    i recommend Sweeney Todd to anyone and everyone. it’s an awesome show that even my pretty conservative parents enjoyed. the music is some of the best available in music theatre; stephen sondheim is a genius. check out “the worst pies in london” and “the ballad of sweeney todd.”
    jazzie and i own the dvd, maybe while ur at irvine u can borrow it. we could have a sweeney and jekyll/hyde party! >.<

    I just wanted to say thank you for being so supportive of the Drama Program! I look forward to seeing you at UCI. We DAMM girls will definitely be planning Musical Marathons for next year. =0)
