The Theory of Relativity - January 11 - January 14, 2022

Northwood High School (Irvine, CA)

 Voices from the Cast & Crew 

We asked students from the production eight questions, and here are some of their responses:



How did you get involved in the Arts at Northwood?

  • "Honestly, I started my first drama class in freshman year because I needed an art credit. From there I really liked the class and liked acting. From there Ms. Bossardet suggested I joined Bass Clef, and now I’m in the musical : )"  Charlie Comer
  • "I decided to take technical theatre because I thought it would be fun to learn about the backstage work of productions. My teacher, Ms. Bossardet, told us about the opportunity to be on the cast for Theory of Relativity, so I applied and got in."  Ashley Huynh
  • "I have been dancing since I was in kindergarten, so when I entered Northwood during Freshman year, I took the opportunity to try out for the dance program. I chose to do Technical Theatre in freshman year because it was something that I have never heard of before. It seemed very new to me, so I wanted to try it out. Learning about all the different crews encouraged me to take part in the productions, so I slowly became more involved in the performing arts programs."  Victoria Ji Gong
  • "I go first involved in the Arts at Northwood when I took drama as my elective in my freshman year. I took intermediate drama the next year and got involved in the musical through applying for stage crew. I was able to be part of the carpentry and running crew for the musical." — Cole Kim
  • "I grew up watching my brothers partake in various arts programs at Northwood and was inspired to do the same."  Mei Ono
  • "I played music throughout my life, and it was just a natural continuation of what I enjoyed doing." — Yian Wan





How does the central theme of interconnectedness relate to your life?

  • "I feel that all of my family, friends, peers, teachers, everyone in my life has had a huge impact on me and how I interact with others. Connectivity is a huge part of my life, and I am so glad to be able to meet so many people." — Aadya Batra
  • "Being connected to my friends and family is one of the most important things to me. Especially after the pandemic, I’ve seen how my emotional health had deteriorated after not being in touch with my friends and people I often hung out with pre-lockdown. The connection you feel with the people you care about allows you to feel supported and safe, and I believe that is one of the best things you can have in life." — Angela Chen
  • "The central theme of interconnectedness relates to my life because humanity is all interconnected. People, events, the world, etc., are all connected in some way, and life is woven together through these bonds." — Sara Kim
  • "I moved a lot in my life and there have been times when I've felt really alone, but I've always been able to reach out and connect with people and that’s helped me a lot." — Delanye Maruska Saunders
  • "The connections we make with other people are what make life worth living. I can say with confidence that I wouldn't be the person I am today without the connections I've made with my friends. Just like the characters in the musical, I've found that our lives are all intertwined together and without each other life can become really dull." — Rey Shanker
  • "I think that the theme of interconnectedness relates to everyone's lives. We are all connected in one way or another, even if we might not know it. Our experiences and emotions make us all connected and prevent us from feeling alone." — Divya Sundararajan
