March Madness

This month has infact been filled with madness. But not with Basketball. During the first week of March Provo High performed 'Tartuffe' by Molière. It was really good. Roughly 20-40 people came on the first 2 nights. But the 3rd night there was about 100. And that was our best night.
Then on the 11th, I filmed a commercial. We started filming at midnight. And I got home around 6:30 in the morning.
Then we performed 'Antigone' by Sophocles. And that was crazy. we had already preformed it twice. But The girl who played Antigone and the girl who did Creon's voice were not able to come to Region to compete. ( The boys did not do their own voices. Partly to show the power of women, and partly because we have only like 4 boys. The boys just acted with their bodies.) So we had to recast Antigone. The Girl who played Antigone's sister Ismene, got the part of Antigone. And then I got the Part of Ismene. I was formerly a chorus member. Then the girl who played Creon's Wife, Eurydice, got the part of Creon. And another chorus member got Eurydice. We had two practices with that cast. Only 2. And then we went to region. We made about 4 mistakes. But, the judges didn't notice. Because we got straight superiors. No one else in the region did. So now we're going to state.
And then this week I filmed a short film. Which was also a ton of fun.
Even though this month has been one of the most stressful months i've ever had (also add in end of the term, which means i had 2 crazy language tests.) It has also been one of the best.
