I'm (Sal) not very proud to say that I never been in a theatre/play performance. I never really had the opportunity to be in a play during elementary school because of timing. I left after 5th grade to attend a new program-Battle Creek Middle School, which I was the first class to start 6th grade here. I left the opportunity to be in a play 6th grade at Battle Creek Elementary School. I was kind of glad back then because I would've been too nervous and scared due to my poor English-grammar skills!

I've learned to appreciate the performing arts theatre program after attending UMM when I went to my college roomates' plays during my freshmen-sophomore years. I went to my first and only "musical play during the summer of 1998-Disney's Lion King, a N.Y. based Broadway show that was first featured in Minneapolis' Orpheum Theatre....

In 2006, I went to see "Singing in the Rain" at the Chanhassan Theatre, which was my first time to see a performance here.
