Rest in peace : a study in solo performance
This project allowed me to utilize the knowledge I have acquired over the past four years at the University of Central Florida as a BFA Musical Theatre major, as well as challenged me to explore and research other areas of theatre that are foreign to me. All this work culminated with a performance of my play, Rest In Peace: A Musical Showcase, and this written thesis. I look forward to leaving the University of Central Florida with deeper insight into playwriting, theatre production, and performance. This project provided me with a performance opportunity where there was none before and provided the students on my production team an opportunity to be part of the development of a new piece of theatre. It also had an effect on the audiences that saw the production, as it reminded people of the important things in life that are easily forgotten by our current generation. It is easy to complain about not ·having performance opportunities, but why waste the time and energy on something that will not accomplish anything? My mother has always said "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade” and that is what I intended to do with this project.
