This last week I had the honor of playing for a local high school musical “The Addams Family”. I was in the orchestra pit playing keyboard. This is something I started doing in college. As a freshman, I was asked to be a rehearsal pianist for Cinderella and then joined the pit for the shows. I was also the rehearsal pianist for Into the Woods and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. It has been such a unique experience to take part in theatre in this way. If I can’t be on stage performing, it is the next best thing. Plus, I love watching the cast and creative team grow throughout the course of the rehearsals and shows. I’ve played for this particular high school for a few years now (Aida, Seussical, Shrek). My dance student Kaitlin Quinn played Morticia Addams. I was so proud of her! She is definitely going places. She will be attending the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in NYC this fall. Keep your eyes open…you might see her on Broadway someday!
