Logan High’s musicals have always been known for being full of amazing acting and singing. It shows how talented our student body actually is and it lets the students show off their talents that they continue to strengthen each and every day. I had the opportunity to interview and talk to one of the talented students that is performing in the musical.
Alex Allred and the other musical students had the opportunity to share their first performance with the elementary students who came to Logan High to watch the musical. When I asked Alex what his favorite part of participating in the musical was he replied instantly and said: “I loved performing for the kids, they seemed to love it and it was a great experience that I had being able to perform for them. I also love the opportunity it gives everyone to get to know each other better, and it pushes us to get out of our comfort zone.” Then, Alex turned back to the lines of kids that walked back towards their buses and began giving them all high fives.
Of course there are many good parts to being in the musical, but there are also bad parts. “So much time goes into the musical,” Alex says, “we practice and perform for hours just to get everything together perfectly. It’s just such a long process. On top of all the hours we put in we also have to keep our grades up and keep on top of our homework.” I watched Alex, dressed in his musical attire as he continued to say hello to the children, then I looked around at the other performers and saw Elizabeth Needham, who plays Cinderella, dressed in a familiar Cinderella dress. It made me wonder how it feels to perform such a popular play. “It’s definitely different than most of the other plays we’ve done, it’s nice to see and perform something different.” Alex replied when I asked him how it was to be performing a popular play.
Alex seemed to be overall excited and looking forward to their performances. When I interviewed Alex, I could see how much he enjoyed performing and showing off his talent even if it meant putting in hours of hard work. He and the other performers have put in a lot of time and effort into this musical, just like Logan High students always do, and I can tell they have loved every minute of it.
