As tickets for the fall musical, Seussical, go on sale today, students continue to prepare for the performance. Not only are actors memorizing their lines, mastering their choreography and rehearsing their songs, but students in tech theater and band are preparing for the event as well. In tech theater, students are putting final touches on set pieces and the band pit is persevering through their pages of music for Seussical. Senior Tateonna Thompson, junior Alex Parks, and junior Brice La Fond share their excitement for the upcoming four performances, and the practice they underwent these past weeks.

Fariha Rashid

A restless spirit, Fariha Rashid, always impeccably dressed, can be found drifting throughout the school, gazing about, never in one place for long. Born thirty years too late, Fariha is in reality an 80's child, accidently misplaced into the 2000's. In her free time, she can be found watching little-known indies, listening to underground music, or updating one of her many tumblrs. Future academy award winner, Fariha is a photographer and filmer. While most see her as a film hipster, friends call her Farihava, the Biggest Fob Ever, or King Aristotle. King Aristotle reigns over the atrium, sitting on her throne, usually a swivel chair, bestowing her wisdom on countless admirers. If you're not lucky enough to know Fariha, look for a petite, Indian with jet black hair cascading gently down her back, making her looking truly regal.

    It’s so cool that the students right here at Rock Bridge are able to pull a show as complicated as this together! I’m surprised by how many I people I barely know from different classes are so involved in this production.

    Sounds like it’s going to be a great show! I loved how we got to see what it’s like to be involved in the show from every perspective; the orchestra, the actor, and the technical aspects.
