Fun Facts About Eddie:
My Favorite Memory from MOTCC:
“I think my favorite moment in the MOTCC was the student dress rehearsal of The Mikado. My whole class was there to see me in the biggest part I’ve ever had. I think that was the most nervous I have ever been. I recall coming out for my first entrance, I had one line of dialogue before I would go into my song. I remember looking out at the crowd before delivering that line, barely being able to breathe, and debating if I should yell to stop the show. Of course, I said the line and the music started to play for my song. It was at that moment I realized that there was nothing to worry about, I was the lead of an opera at the opera house; if they didn’t think I could do it, then they wouldn't have cast me in the role. That might be the biggest thing I have learned from the MOTCC: you wouldn’t be put somewhere or asked to do something if people didn’t believe you could do.
I will always remember going back to school and my friends looking at me and saying. 'Eddie your opera was so cool, but what exactly was it about.' And to them I would respond, 'Nobody really knows.'" - Eddie
