Students New To Stage Anticipate Debut in Musical

Even for a veteran, performing in front of an audience can be very intimidating. The Northwood drama club, which this week will perform its fall musical, The Good Old Days, has a couple of students who have never before performed on stage.

Margot Rouquette ‘20 is a hockey player and golfer from France. She loves to try new things, but she had never tried performing before. So last spring, she auditioned for the school musical. “I wanted to be more involved in the community and to try something new, which is always good,” Rouquette said. She continued, “I’m still not comfortable with singing and dancing. But I have a solo and a couple of dances [in the play].”

Just like Rouquette, Julia Geraldi ‘20 doesn’t have prior experience in drama performance but she auditioned for the school musical. She is primarily known at Northwood as an alpine ski racer.

“As a senior, I wanted to try something new outside of skiing. The school play Anon(ymous) last year encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and try singing,” Geraldi recalled. “I’m very glad I joined the drama program this year. I met people I wouldn’t normally meet or talk to outside of school. I’ve been having a lot of fun, and I’m excited to see how this experience will open up new opportunities for me in the future,” she said.

Performances of The Good Old Days are Tuesday, October 29 and Wednesday, October 30 at 7:00 PM at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. Admission is free.
