Every high school student waits for the annual musical to happen every year. Tempers run high, anxiety attacks multiply and mood swings become a way of life. Students wait with bated breath to see who gets the lead roles. Auditions are tense moments for those with theatrical aspirations. The possibility of rejection looms large on the horizon.
For those with more modest ambitions, back stage functions are a matter of primary concern. Who will be in charge of costumes? Who will design and build the sets? Every one wants to be associated with the production. This becomes a matter of pride.
