The lead actor, a grade 6 student, shared that this wasn’t his first time to be part of an ACT play. He was a junior ACT member in Grade 4 and was also part of the ACT play last year.
 
Asked if he was nervous saying his lines, he said, “Not really. I practice the lines again and again. I read them every night and sing the songs to save my time.’ He also shared that his parents were very proud of him and excited to see him perform.
