Blog: Week 4: Tech Week

Alec Santaularia, web editor

This is possibly the most stressful time of any production: tech week. Rehearsing with costumes, adding lights, sound and props and everything else that will go into the final production. As of today, we only have one week until the show opens on Wednesday, May 1. Needless to say, tensions are running high and my fellow thespians are a little testy, to say the least. However, it is a necessary part of any production and we must muddle through as best we can without tearing each other to shreds.

Along with all the stress and worry also comes a sense of sadness. As a senior, this is my final production at the school. After being involved in every theater production the school has put on since my freshman year, it is strange to know that this will be my last time performing on this stage. Every time I walk into the theater now, I feel a slight pang of nostalgia that reminds me of my past four years here, along with all of the people that I’ve met and all the memories I’ve made. It is a feeling that I’ve been anticipating, but I simply cannot bring myself to recognize the fact that my high school acting career is almost at an end.

Despite all of this, the feelings of excitement and anticipation that I get prior to a performance are still quite prominent. I am determined to make my last show a great one. I hope that my fellow cast mates feel the same way, and channel that energy into the show in order to make these performances great.
