What an opening night for the cast of Stage Lights! Without exaggerating I am definitely going back Friday and Saturday night to watch it again. If you know anything about Charlie Chaplin’s character of the Tramp you know he is all about shenanigans and accidental humor. Patrick definitely brings to life the charming and captivating tramp that Charlie Chaplin created.
I was probably more excited then anyone I know about this play. Being the huge silent film and Charlie Chaplin fan that I am, I was not let done by this play. I am very excited for all those who participated in the play because they look like they had lots of fun.
I find it quite amusing that you will see a guy who is in your advisory be on stage and play a giant gorilla. It might be the fact that it is a small school but I do not think it is possible at large schools to be part of a production or an ensemble unless you are majoring in a fine art. That’s what makes Wabash great. You might even be a Spanish History double major and be part of one of the theatre productions or be on the football team and the Glee Club. Yeah maybe Wabash does not have as much as bigger schools to offer, but what we do have you can be part of no matter what you are majoring in. Small school means there is room to get around and try a bit of everything. I have never acted before and I am more than excited for my intro to acting class next semester and I am a Music Spanish double major. You can do a lot at Wabash no and it won’t really matter what your interest is.
