The past few weeks I've had the pleasure of working at Pasadena Musical Theater Program, a summer-long pre-professional training ground run by Ryan Scott Oliver. Throughout my time here I've photographed rehearsals, headshots (for 125 kids!), and production photos of the show "Positively Wicked." Having long since left the world of summer programs, I found it rather remarkable to witness the growth of the students over my time here and couldn't have been more thrilled to see the final product.
The show tells the story of Ellie Schtick, who finds her new school to be a crazy institution where conformity means popularity, and popularity rules all. Ellie seeks the help of six Outcasts to thwart the evilest of the Populars and turn the twisted high school upside-down...
