“I think Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is super well known and I’ve never done it, so I was really excited.” Liam explains. For a 1954 musical film, not many students at Davis have heard of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, other then the musical theater, a little older adults or the students that are playing in the musical.
Musical theatre is a form of theatre performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical. “It’s a lot harder than people think. I think putting yourself into different mindset and doing right can be exhausting.”
How a person can act in a play or a movie is very remarkable. Some people think it can be really easy but it looks harder then you think. Acting takes time and a lot of skills, just like any sport people play. They work they’re hardest so they can be perfect.
“With the group we have, we get a lot done in a short period of time. Of course, there’s conflict sometimes but it’s a good group.” Liam said. As for many students and parents, everyone can’t wait to see this play, how it comes together and see how everyone does their part in it.
