Choate Fringe Festival

I’m the Board Director for my school’s Fringe Festival in the Spring, and I’m really excited! The Fringe Festival used to be the Student Playwriting Festival, but now it’s been expanded to include slam poetry, films, and musicals. As Board Director, I led the submissions process and I’m pretty happy with what we have. I’m not only Board Director, but I will also be acting (as I have been for the past three years) and this year, I will additionally be directing one of the performances! I’m a little nervous because I’ve never directed anything before, but also really excited. Acting is an art and a hobby that I’ve really found myself in and I’d encourage all of your to pursue your own dreams even if they seem like they won’t be of any use in the future – if it makes you happy, do it!
