Tonight marks the culmination of all of the preparation for Elements production of the Pillars of the Community! Opening Night- the first time the public can see all the hard work and dedication put into this play. The costumes, set, lighting, makeup, sound and the wonderful acting will come together tonight for the first performance of the Pillars of the Community! The actors have put in countless hours becoming their characters and brining the play to life, and now it is time to share their love of theater and this wonderful play! Happy Opening Night!!
It struck me today as I thought about the last week, that sometimes something that looks bad can actually lead to something good. Last Thursday, two of our teachers from our trip to Chicago came to help with the Pillars of Community play. Along with helping with the play, they were able to experience life with us for a weekend. They seemed to really enjoy their stay, and we were extremely happy to have them. The plan was for them to fly out on Monday morning, but of course due to Hurricane Sandy, their flight was cancelled. They couldn't find a flight out until Wednesday, which meant another 2 days here!! This normally inconvenient event, turned into a blessing for them and also an opportunity for more input on the play. We are so grateful to them for coming and for giving us their time and energy. This play is going to be a success!!
