Written for Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School
A couple of weeks ago we had our annual variety show, in which students from two of our schools had the chance to show off their singing and dancing skills in a real theatre. They had a wonderful time, and so did their parents, grandparents and friends who were in the audience. It’s a great experience for children to have that moment in the spotlight, either by themselves or with their classmates. But most people who come to watch a performance don’t think about what goes on outside of that spotlight. And there are actually a lot of things that need to happen offstage to make sure that the show goes on.
