To the editor,
I recently attended the theatre production "Crimes of the Heart" at Rosemount High School. It was fun to laugh and have my focus held for almost two hours without a thought to the rest of the world.
Being a teacher myself, I know the amount of time that goes into productions like these. The tech crews, actors, teachers, parents, etc. are incredibly dedicated to producing the best show possible. They all should be applauded with a standing ovation for their hard work and incredible talent.
There was one problem. The evening I attended had an audience of about one hundred people. That shocked me! I know there is a lot going on at RHS, in a great way, but I don't think people in the area realize what they are missing. Even at my small school these types of productions are attended by more people than the auditorium can hold. Seriously, I was shocked and felt sorry for the talented individuals involved. I know that sometime in the future I will be able to say, "Wow, I saw them in a play at RHS and look at them now." I already feel very lucky to have experienced such a great show. I'm sorry you missed it.
