Right now I am in the middle of choreographing a musical for my sonâ€™s middle school. We are doing Aladdin, Jr., and I am working with 60 5th-8th graders. As I draw out diagrams of who goes where and count beats, I realize that all this orchestrating Iâ€™m doing is another form of storytelling, just like writing a book. As Co-Director Iâ€™m making decisions on how we tell the story, just like writers decide what scenes they write for their book.
If you are interested Friends Christian Middle School will be performing Aladdin, Jr. March 13 (7pm) and 14 (1 & 4pm) at Rose Drive Friends Church in Yorba Linda. Tickets are $7. Call 714-202-8410 for more information.
