This weekend Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts in Matthews, North Carolina will feature almost 100 students on stage performing in two different productions. One of those kids belongs to me. The rest of them are amazingly talented too! This year I was lucky enough to score a behind-the-scenes pass and put on my theatre photography hat. Here’s a sneak peek of all the hard work these students have put into both A Year With Frog and Toad and Into The Woods Jr. The shows are completely different and completely perfect all at the same time. You are going to be floored by the talent in these casts. Congratulations to all of the School of Theatre students in these two shows! I’d watch you all over and over and over again . . . which I actually get to do! Lucky me!
