Return to the Stage is a Recipe for Excitement
When I heard that Willy Wonka was the 2016 Spring production I thought to myself, "Oh how I would love to audition!" I was nervous for various reasons. First off it had been a very long time since my last stage performance, and secondly having physical limitations I naturally doubted myself. But with the encouragement of family and friends I took the plunge once again. I rehearsed my chosen song until I I had it down pat. I was so excited to be chosen to be part of this trul
