ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
Ellie is so excited to be in her very first show ever, AYT's production of Anne of Green Gables. She auditioned because her sisters, Emma and Brooke, were also auditioning. Now she is having so much fun watching everyone rehearse and is happy to be a part of it. Learning how a show becomes a show and how theater works behind the scenes has been the most interesting parts of her new acting experience. Never has she had so much fun doing something that takes a lot of work. Just don't ask her to pick her favorite show - she has loved every play or musical she's seen! There's no part she wouldn't love to play either and will always do her best no matter what role she's in.
Ellie is also learning to be very independent and responsible. Each week she reminds her parents
which rehearsals she needs to be at and at what time. They love seeing her become more outgoing, too!
Like any parent, they are hoping Ellie gains confidence in developing this new talent, and are thrilled that
she has found something she loves to do.
Ellie's parents also hope that she will learn the skills she needs to speak in public, take direction from adults
and peers to help better herself, and have a great time doing it all! They love how the AYT directing staff keeps the kids on task, and are so grateful for how excited Ellie is every time they take her to rehearsal. She thrives
in this new performing arts environment and is making new friends to boot.
