As The Curtain Closes

Brendan Hindle

As it all ends I want to hang onto the moments that I wish could last forever.

I’m sad to say that it’s finally over. I have finally met the end of the road of my journey. A week today marks the closing night of my last high school production. To be honest, I was thinking of not doing this show at all, but I’m so glad I did. I would’ve regretted it so much if I hadn’t. Getting one more chance to share the spotlight with the most talented people I know will be something I will never regret. I was able to meet and become close with a few more special people before my final sendoff.

When it came to the final week I didn’t know how I would honestly react to it all. I didn’t really feel anything until the final show ended. It wasn’t until my best friend came over to me and said “we’re never gonna get to perform together again” that I completely lost it. Everyone just started crying and hugging each other as we realized this would be one of the last moments all of us would ever be together.

Some of the things I’m going to miss the most are the traditions we do before each show which I hope will carry on forever, our pow wow circles we do in the choir room, and most importantly the people. I love doing theatre because of the amazing people you get to surround yourself with. I have met some of my best friends in the community and I have loved every minute be able to be around them.

To Ashton Posner, Nya Jones, Bianca Cabarios, Allison Staffen, Adalyna Mislevy, Alex Pergjoni, Aiden Debbs, Claire Kraft, Andrew Palmer, Mya Bocheneck, Arianna Apel, Rachel Cushard, Justin Pilarski, and Cloe Campbell, thank you all truly for everything. Thank you for all the memories that I will remember for a lifetime. I love you all more than you could know.

And as I take my final bow the curtain finally closes.
