...e set in the spotlight. I want to be involved in that world… it was in the show I realized I love musical theater. I don’t know anything else in this world that would make me happier than performing on stage or being a part of the performance to come to life, weather if its behind the scene or on the scene. I want to drag the whole audience into the same world Georgia Kate Haege (plays Donna) did, she inspired me, and I fell in love with the art of musical theater.

- There is one universal language: the language of music. Music has a special quality and ability to bridge both social and cultural divides. A proposed theory by Dr. Gray, Founder and Director of National Musical Arts’ BioMusic Program; describes music has been around longer than human-beings have. Music is the one thing human beings from various backgrounds can relate to. Every living creature would agree. Music is heard everywhere not just among humans, but in nature as well, through the twitting of birds, winds blowing, the soft sound of raindrops against a windowpane, the ocean waves moving back and forth and the hum of the ocean rushing in a sea shell....

- When you think of going to college, and coming in as a freshman, what do you picture. I can tell you all the crazy things I imagined. The first thing was, the parties and crazy trips that I would be able to experience out of state just like the movies showed. Well, like most cases, movies exaggerate what really doesn’t happen in school. For example, “High school Musical”, was a series where 90 percent of those things in the movie didn’t happen to any of us in high school. Something else I thought about was the adult feeling of living away from my mother.... [tags: High school, High School Musical, College]

- The piece of poetry I am analysing is an Italian Sonnet called Madonna Mia, by Oscar Wilde. This poem does not deviate from the Italian Sonnet formula; a formula consisting of a stichic syllabic structure, and stressing according to a pentameter - that is, each verse line is 10 syllables, five of which are stressed. Furthermore, this poem, being an Italian Sonnet, is divided into two sections: "an eight-line `octave' of two quatrains, rhymed [abbaacca], followed by a six-line `sestet' usually rhymed [cdeced]" (Baldick, p239)....

- RENT the Musical There's a scene in the new musical "RENT" that may be the quintessential romantic moment of the '90s. Roger, a struggling rock musician, and Mimi, a junkie who's a dancer at an S/M club, are having a lovers' quarrel when their beepers go off and each takes out a bottle of pills. It's the signal for an "AZT break," and suddenly they realize that they're both HIV-positive. Clinch. Love duet. If you don't think this is romantic, consider that Jonathan Larson's sensational musical is inspired by Puccini's opera "La Boheme," in which the lovers Mimi and Rodolfo are tragically separated by her death from tuberculosis....
