Backstage Pass

Artist Statement

The storytelling world of high school theater enchanted my daughter. It began freshman year when she was cast in her first musical, Fiddler on the Roof. After that, she was hooked, and theater became a core part of her high school experience. As part of this small community, she worked on semester long collaborative projects culminating in six public performances. During months of hard work, students prepare every critical detail. Lines and music are memorized and rehearsed, movements and gestures choreographed, sets built and painted, props gathered or constructed, posters designed and printed, costumes selected or sewn and fitted. Over the years, my daughter gained valuable skills, rewarding experiences and enriching friendships.

I started pitching in through small volunteer opportunities and enjoyed being around the community of students, teachers, and parents. Encouraged by the experiences, I offered my photographic skills for headshots which led to a nose-dive into a documentary project. My backstage pass is a window into the fun and dynamic world behind the scenes of theater education and almost makes me want to do high school all over again.
