Hi fellow Paint Branch students! I’m MaryGrace Ruebens and I’m a makeup artist for the upcoming play of Charlotte’s Web.
It’s amazing to see how far the set has come in what feels like such little time. It’s been a month since we started building the set and it’s crazy to think that we as a tech team, built it all with our bare hands, all with the instruction of Ms. Ryan.
This is my first year at Paint Branch and my first year being fully involved in theatre. I’ve learned so much and I’ve made so many friends, it’s incredible. Today I learned how to dilute paint with water to create shadows and help make the set look more realistic. It was awesome when we finished because you could actually see the difference it made.
One thing that I love about Perspectives is that the people who are involved are honestly some of the weirdest I’ve ever met but they’re also some of the most hard working and friendly people I’ve ever met. We’ve had so many memories and I’m sure hell week will be… interesting. But honestly, I’ve never seen people work so well together and so fluently together. I can’t wait for the first show!
