My memory this evening is sort of a spin-off of yesterday’s post – it has to do with my love of music.
When I was either in Elementary School or Middle School (I honestly don’t remember which), I had the privilege of attending a York High School Musical. To say my life was changed would be an understatement! I remember exiting the auditorium that night thinking, I CAN’T WAIT TO GO TO HIGH SCHOOL SO I CAN BE IN THE MUSICAL! I’m happy to report that EVERY SINGLE YEAR they had a musical, I WAS IN IT! One years there was no musical due to the building of a new auditorium. I (as well as many others) WAS DEVISDATED!
Part of the joy of being in the musical was having the opportunity to associate with the Musical Director, Mr. Mike Sullivan! He was an AMAZING man! Everyone thought the world of him and I can honestly say, he was an amazing role model! He was ALWAYS positive and he treated every student as thought they were the most important person on stage! He taught us commitment, teamwork, professionalism, and the JOY OF SUCCESS due to hard work!
One of many marvelous musical memories was the final weeks leading to the performance. We would practice late into the evenings, eating covered dish supers brought to the school by the parents. You talk about EXCELLENT FOOD, FUN and FELLOWSHIP! What awesome memories!
Honestly, I can’t imagine what my high school career would have been like without the musical!
