On December 8th Drama Club had a performance at BIHS, in the gym. The performance went really well- our students are very talented, and the NYU students are also amazing. The only bad thing for us was the audience. We did wonderful work, and it felt like only 6 people showed up. I felt remorse about that. I was kind of feeling bad because I thought the NYU students were going to think that the school doesn’t care about drama club. After the show we served the audience food and talked to them. The performance was great- I feel like next semester I can’t miss drama club.
After we performed for our school, BIHS, we went to NYU to perform. We had a performance at NYU on December 15th. We had one hour to practice before the show. When I entered the NYU Theater it was nice and clean- it wasn’t really a big theater, but for our performance it was awesome because when you talk the audience can hear you nice and clear.
After we had practiced, we opened the doors for the audience. I thought 30 people were coming to watch us, but at the first performance it was the same thing- only about 6 people showed up. Now I was kind of feeling confident about myself, because we had the same number of people that came to watch our performance at BIHS.
The show at NYU was great. Afterwards, when we were talking to the audience, we asked them if they had any question for us. Someone asked how it felt to work with the NYU students. I said it was fun because you get to learn about them- what they like to do, what its like being in college- and they learned about our culture. My buddy and I once went to get a coffee to talk and learn more about each other.
After the show we had a party for the actors, and that’s the last time we got to see the NYU students. It was hard to say goodbye, but everyone knows everything has an ending. So we talked to each other, took pictures and ate. At the same time it was a member of drama club’s birthday, so the NYU students surprised her with a cake. It was awesome. I wish we could see each other again, act together, sing and be in drama club again. NYU students- we miss you guys.
