    Author, Actor tells students to dream big

    By Philip McMichael '16

    "You're allowed to be brazen enough to have several huge dreams."

    So said bestselling young adult author Tim Federle yesterday, when he spoke with the middle school  about much more than his award-winning teen novels.

    Born in San Francisco, Federle moved to New York to follow his passion for acting, eventually taking part in several Broadway shows, including "Oliver" and "Billy Elliot".

    He then pursued another direction, realizing, as he told the audience, that it's never too late or wrong to switch careers. For Federle, writing was his second calling, and he wanted to create a book about a boy chasing his dreams.

    That book, Better Nate Than Ever,  continues to fly off bookshelves along with its just-released sequel, Five, Six, Seven, Nate!. Federle also shared his inspirations with the students, making an evident impact on many who were present.

    Cassie Plunkett ’16 said, “It was amazing being able to talk to someone who was so accomplished and was able to succeed by following their dreams. He explained that no matter what everyone else is saying, no matter whether your hopes seem irrational, you must never stop pursuing your goals and dreams.”

    The first convocation of the new year brought excitement and animation to the gym. The Drama Department put on several acts of upcoming productions, including Macbeth and  Honk! for the upper school and middle school, respectively. Upper school thespians included veterans Max Matiauda '14 and Laila Khatib '14, and a slew of new and up-and-coming middle school talent was showcased in Honk!. But seventh graders Giovanna Befeler and Reilly May stole the show. We look forward to these Palmer Trinity productions later on this year.

    Beauty and the Beast Huge Success

    As the lights dim in the Palmer Trinity theater, and the familiar music begins to fill the space, a feeling flows across the entire room, "This is going to be good."

    Although I have not seen everything that the Palmer Trinity theater department has produced, I can tell there was something different about this show. The actors, ranging from middle schoolers to seniors in high school, were noticeably a cohesive group of kids who truly loved what they were performing.

    However, the shining stars were the seniors. Isabella Victoriano, who played the lead role of Belle, enchanted the audience with her beautiful voice. Max Matiauda as the Beast easily created a legion of fans after just one performance. Opposite each other, these two super-stars formed a powerful bond.

    Other seniors, such as Pedro Domit, Melinda Klenk, and Paulina Acebal, also had stellar performances as Lumiere, Cogsworth, and Ms. Potts respectively.

    Together, this enchanting group of seniors put on one of the best shows I, and several other people I spoke to, have ever seen at the Palmer Trinity theater.

    I think it's safe to say that after this show, I would "be their guest," anytime.
