This past Thursday at Bay College was the annual Serendipity thing. It is an evening for student writers, artists, and performers to present their works, and three of my friends from the drama club and I performed to promote the evening and Bay’s drama club. These performances concluded a night of poetry and prose readings, visual art showcases, and various animations.
For the drama club, four of us were asked to perform certain selections from shows Bay has done or is going to do. Emily, who played Matron Mama Morton in Bay’s fall production of Chicago, reprised her role to perform “When You’re Good to Mama”; Colton, who performed as Benedick in Bay’s production of Much Ado About Nothing, recited Benedic’s soliloquy; and Jordan, who performed as Don John in Much Ado, and I performed as Rod and Nicky respectively as a preview for next fall’s production of Avenue Q—the song we performed was “If You Were Gay,” and I’ve included a video for those of you unfamiliar with the track:
I’m not too terribly fond of this guy’s Nicky, but this was one of the better quality videos I could find of this particular song.
The night as a whole, I think, was a good experience for all of us who were involved. I’m happy to have had such a great opportunity and I’m very proud of the reception Jordan and I received for our performance.
