Seniors Alex Andrews and Ryan Vance love life on the stage

Published: Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 04:14 PM.

When Chanticleer, the elite mixed chorus ensemble, takes to the stage in the fall, Alex said watching them perform will be a different experience for him.

"It's going to be strange just sitting in the auditorium and not being up on the risers," he said.

"It's tough not being up there on stage, isn't it?" Ryan said. "It's really weird sitting out there in the audience."

College plans

Ryan plans to head to Troy University this fall. He auditioned for the theatre department's upcoming season a couple weeks ago.

"They have an amazing program," he said. "I can't wait to get up there and continue to the next level. If I get cast, even in one show, I'll be happy."

Alex's plans include Northwest Florida State College for two years, during which he will focus on singing in the choir at Live Oak Baptist Church, his church home, and conducting its children's choir.
