Students perform in Theatre in the Park

Auditioning against more than 600 people, juniors Paris Naster and Austin Klein and senior Morgan Sterrett were selected as part of the Storyteller ensemble in the Theatre in the Park production Children of Eden this summer.

Sterrett said the role involves narrating the gaps between characters’ dialogue with singing and dancing. For her, she said it has been nothing but a positive experience, especially with the cast, as everyone works together extremely well.

“When everyone’s on the same page, it just meshes and clicks,” Sterrett said. “It’s amazing that we can all work together to make such a beautiful show.”

The cast has been rehearsing Sunday nights through Thursday nights for around six weeks. But all this time together isn’t unfamiliar to Sterrett, Naster and Klein, since they have been performing together in countless productions since middle school. Sterrett said having familiar faces with her each step of the way is extremely supportive.

“It’s kind of a comfort blanket to have Paris and Austin there with me for every rehearsal,” Sterrett said. “The first week was intimidating since I had never been in a park show before, but to know two people going into it, and knowing they have my back and I have theirs, was really comforting.”

The production kicks off the 2013 Theatre in the Park season with opening night tonight at 8:30. Performances run June 7-9 and June 13-15.

“I’m both nervous and excited,” Sterrett said. “But I have such confidence in the cast, we know the stuff like the back of our hand. All of us truly love the show, and I’

m more excited than anything to share what we’ve been working on with such a large audience.”
