Class Memories From 1979

In 1979 or 1978?, I played "Vinny" the maid in Beach Channel High School's fabulous production of "The Miracle Worker". I was blown away by the talent of the actors, and the students who played the leading roles were phenomenal. In one scene, I had to get water from a pump. We had a hose rigged to a pump, and when I moved the arm of the pump up and down, water actually came out because a student was behind the curtain to turn on the hose. However, the second time that I went to use the pump, the student who was supposed to turn on the hose was not behind the curtain, and the audience laughed because no water came out of the pump the second time. Also, I remember auditioning for "The Pajama Game". I was offered a lead role but could not take it because it was a choice between taking the role or getting a part-time job that I needed at the time.

Will not be attending the 30-year reunion in October since I live all the way in California. I am one of many 1979 grads missing from the list of alumni for that year. Don't know why some people are listed and others not.
