Middle and Upper School theater students were visited by award-winning actress Rachel John, who opened as Angelica Schuyler in the original West End cast of Hamilton, and Director of Arts International Dr. Andrew Lee. 

Students performed several numbers from their recent production of Twelfth Night and got glowing feedback and constructive notes from Ms. John. During a Q&A session, students asked thoughtful questions about how to prepare for auditions, develop an authentic character, and manage finances and other life challenges as an actor. Ms. John answered candidly and generously shared her wealth of knowledge and experience. At the end of the session, Ms. John performed "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman with students chiming in during the chorus.

What a powerful and unique experience for our students!
