so, as mentioned before, in the spirit of carpe diem summer, i joined a musical theatre class with my sister a few weeks ago. :O
here’s what i was going to post after our first class a few weeks back:
“so we just attended our first musical theatre class the other day, and it was pretty fun! 😀
everyone was really nice, and i was surprised to discover that despite my lack of any acting/singing background, i was not the least experienced person there! ^-^ and also despite being younger than most of the other people in the class, we were treated pretty equally 😀 and we fit in pretty well, i think. :3
so yeah, it was really fun. and i felt really comfortable there.
until they all started naming these famous musicals and talking about singing and things (something i have no experience in D: nor proper knowledge of) and then i felt a little silly because when they said “larger than life”, i thought of backstreet boys, when they said “seymour” i thought of final fantasy x, when they said “jekyll & hyde”, i thought of this:
and out all the (about five) musicals that i knew of, three of them i knew of because of glee! xD oh my goodness, i’m so un-deep. :P”
haha. but no, the class is actually really fun, and the people are all amazing, and i’m glad we made this spontaneous decision to join it. ^^ now. hopefully i won’t be completely embarassing during the performance at the end of the class! ^^” hehe…
BUT! speaking of the performance 😀 we got so lucky with the song they gave us~ judging from all the musicals they were naming the first class, we figured we’d get some famous song we aren’t really familiar with and have to learn it from scratch but we got like one of our favourite songs that we’ve been singing since we were kids! 😀 as a duet too! yay~ we even have the song listed as songs to practice for fun in our carpe diem summer’s to do list from earlier!

I luv musical theatre! \o/ I remember at Sheridan, walking through the halls, listening to the delightfully pleasant harmonies of the theatre/drama class…good times and good vibes （‐＾▽＾‐） My dad also sings in a band 😀 Music is my second language ( ﾟヮﾟ) I would love to see The Lion King (musical)!!! Do you play any instruments? BTW I love the Arthur books and show lol.
