When did you first start Stageright?

“I’ve been doing it since the summer of seventh grade.”

 What have you been involved in for Stageright?

“I do their show choirs and I’ve been in 12 shows.”

What do you like about East theater that’s different from what you’ve experienced at Stage Right?

“It gives a lot more opportunities because they do double casting — so it’s not just one cast, it’s two casts. And even though it creates competition, it creates a way to grow and learn off of each other.”

Why do you like the program and think others should try it?

“It’s a really cool program just because it’s an environment where there’s so much talent and it’s a really great opportunity to get to know people around Kansas City who are working professionally.”

When did you first start Stageright?

“I did Footloose with Stageright the summer before my freshman year.”

What have you been involved in for Stageright?

“I joined the choirs Vocalocity and Vocapella and I’ve been in Grease and Footloose.”

What motivated you to join Stageright?

“I had a few friends who were doing it and I was also just looking for shows in the summer and Stageright was just a really good opportunity to do that.”

What do you like about East theater that’s different from what you’ve experienced at Stage Right?

“We don’t have any choirs that dance and perform while they’re singing and also there’s kids from other schools so it’s a more diverse group of people and you can broaden your horizons.”

Freshman Fritz Sullivan

 SULLIVAN,fritz

When did you first start Stageright?

“I first started in second grade.”

What have you been involved in for Stageright?

“I’m in two acapella groups and the show choir Vocalocity. It’s really fun because it feels like you’re living in a musical, but you’re not.”

What do you like about East theater that’s different from what you’ve experienced at Stage Right?

“I’m able to make more friends outside of school and also it’s just more theatre and it’s a loving environment — it’s a family.”

Why do you like the program and think others should try it?

“I think it’s the greatest way to make a family outside of school, and I think it also teaches a lot about theatre and performing, and it gives you life skills that you can take with you throughout your whole life.”

When did you join the program?

“I started Stageright this year.”

What do you do in show choir?

“Every rehearsal we learn dances to songs [and sing them] and we’re trying to incorporate more dances in the area.”

What do you like about East theater that’s different from what you’ve experienced at Stage Right?

“What’s nice about Stageright is that it’s incorporated with different schools and with people I don’t get to see all the time.”

Why do you think people should join the program?

“I think it’s a really exciting and fun way to combine a lot of different aspects of theatre while also being able to make friendships with people who wouldn’t have otherwise met.”
