For Trumbull High sophomore Natalie Devito, performing means freedom and personal expression. Natalie, who will play the Sugar Plum Fairy in the upcoming student performance of “Winter Ballet” at the school, said the annual fund-raiser required a great deal of preparation from the singers and dancers performing in it. The show is Saturday, Dec. 8, with performances at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
“Rehearsals are twice a week but as the show gets closer, more will be added on”, she said. “It is a lot of work but the final product is worth it in the end. Dancing and the arts mean a lot to me personally. It has always been a place for freedom of expression and where acceptance is guaranteed by everyone.”
