Performing in Theatre

Written by Gabriel Browning Rodriguez ‘21
Recently, theatre has been a big part of my life, but for a while I never wanted any part of it. I was never confident that I would be able to remember lines or sing well, so I did not get involved for the first two years of my time at Greenwood. 

It wasn’t until Grade 9 that I ventured out of my comfort zone and got more involved in the Arts. Since then, theatre (both in and outside of the school) has given me some of the best experiences I have ever had with acting.

Comic Potential, Greenwood’s upcoming Senior Play, is a perfect example of a great cast and crew coming together. Everyone I am working with puts so much effort into their roles that it makes me want to be better. Not only that, but this play is really funny, for all ages. It’s clever, heartwarming and a blast to perform. I'm almost certain that this will be one of the best play experiences I will have, and I'm so glad I went for it. 

I’m excited to perform a play that feels very different from almost any other show Greenwood has done. My character, Adam, is a weird and antisocial character but he has such a clear fascination with films. It's a very interesting dynamic!
