As TheaterCNU’s production of “Pericles, Prince of Tyre” comes to a close all I can think of is how lucky I am to have been a part of it. I honestly could not have asked for a better show with which to start my theater career here at CNU. It has been a remarkable journey, and it will be really hard to let go. But, I know this incredible story will remain with me for a long time to come.
Seeing this show come to an end is a little easier because I know the work we have done has been unique to us. I am absolutely sure no one has done a production of “Pericles” the way we have done it, and I’m sure no one will ever be able to replicate it either. We truly created a work of art combining the joys of acting, dancing and music.
We have worked on “Pericles” all semester, and I would not have changed a single second of it. We came together to put on a great production, and the outcome far exceeded our expectations. I am so happy to say that I was a part of this show, because we put everything we had into making it come to life.
I know when this production closes it will stay with us. When you work on a show like this and dedicate so much of yourself to it, it never really leaves you. The cast I had the privilege of working with has been so amazing. Witnessing the way everyone worked made me want to excel and push myself to do the best I could.
I am very aware that I will never be in a show quite like this again and that is what makes it so special. I can’t even begin to describe the ways I am thankful to have been a part of this production. I know that TheaterCNU’s production of “Pericles, Prince of Tyre” has been a once in a lifetime experience.
