The rehearsals, costumes, makeup and excitement are all part of the preparation and performance in a large performing arts festival for schools. After all the excitement children, parents and teachers return to their normal routines with the experiences now a part of the memories they will carry with them throughout life.
Sitting at my desk, days pass, my work only having begun with the performance. There are DVDs to produce for schools and families. I pause between edits, over 100 hours into the process. As a break, I pick up my pen and write another 100WCGU story. Once posted, I return to my edit.
