English 10: Writing Portfolio
Catholic Memorial High School
|Dear Andrew Lloyd Webber,
This is an honor to be writing a letter to a famous writer and director. I am
Conary Ryan and I am currently attending Catholic Memorial High School as a sophomore in West
Roxbury, Massachusetts. For my tenth grade English class I was given by my teacher to look up
information and to write a brief letter for you to come say a few words for my class. I did not know
much about you, but I came across some interesting facts about you career as a writer.
While I was looking you up on the Internet I cam across that you had wrote Jesus
Christ Superstar. In eighth grade we had had watched that movie and I found it quite an amazing
piece of work. My music teacher made us take notes to know all about this film and we ended up
having a test on the movie and you. I also saw that you wrote Phantom of the Opera, which is one of
the greatest Musical Theatre movies that anyone has ever seen. I also came across that you had been
rewarded with seven Tonys, three Grammys including Best Contemporary Classical Composition for
Requiem, six Oliviers, a Golden Globe, an Oscar, an International Emmy, the Praemium Imperiale and
the Richard Rodgers award for Excellence in Musical Theatre. In all your pieces of work you are
known as one of the most famous musical writer and director in Musical Theatre history. As you
studied at Magdalen College, Oxford, I believe you did a little acting but most of all you were
known to be a writer for a Broadway Musical.
One of my favorite lines in a your work is I really like the “love” scripts like
in the Phantom of the Opera where the character said, “Say you'll share with me one love, one
lifetime. Lead me, save me from my solitude. Say you'll want me with you here beside you.
Anywhere you go, let me go too”. I like that part because the phantom expresses the truth and that
ties into people’s love life and letting out the truth. I am a big fan of love movies and comedy.
In today’s life, are you still writing and directing Musical Theatre? I saw that
you had some tough times with the ladies and relationship so it seems like we have something in
common but you’re a better writer then me. So as a new friend Mr. Andrew Lloyd Webber, I am asking
you too please come visit my school in West Roxbury, MA, to come say a few words on two thirty- five
Baker Street, room twenty three for my Period B class. It would mean a lot and be a huge experience
to actually meet you in person. Thank you.
A New Fan,
Conary E. Ryan
Percy Shelley had written a letter to his friend
Peacock in the year July 22, 1816
|On October 1, 2006 eighteen people
in an illegal scheme smuggled grenade launchers, shoulder- fired
missles and other Russian military weapons into the United States. The main criminal is Artur
Solomonyan, an American citizen living New York and Los Angeles. His second hand man is Christiaan
Dewet Spies, who is a South African citizen living in New York. The two were caught during their
last meeting in Manhattan to finalize their smuggling attack in Russia. The remaining sixteen are
being held in custody for further information, and were arrested in New York, Los Angeles, and
Florida. Solomonyan and Spies could be sentenced for life in prison. Clearly, these crimes were
crimes of power because they were going to gain control of nuclear power weapons used for a
terrorist attack on America.
