I’m so excited to share this summer’s hard work with you all! This summer has had so many ups and downs but I’m so proud of the final product. I’ve been working to direct for 3 years now and I’m beyond thrilled to have this opportunity. For the past 3 years, I’ve been the director or the team for our mid year dinner. I was also the assistant director this last summer. All of this experience has prepared me to direct my first show! I want to say a special thank you to the people who have helped me get here. Thank you to my parents Michelle and Collin for all the lessons and the help. Thank you to Hannah and Kayla for the advice.

Finally thank you to this amazing cast for making my first directing experience such an amazing one.
