Get Ready! It’s Showtime!

There’s a knock on the dressing room door . . . “Hey, are all thirty-nine of you actors ready to roll?? The director needs to see everyone on stage now!”

Ten minutes before the show opens . . . get READY-- time to break a leg!

Traditionally, if you want to wish someone good luck before a theater performance, do not say good luck but instead, say break a leg!

During a summer performance at our community theater, thirty-nine young cast members waited nervously backstage . . .

try keeping this many children ages four to fourteen quiet and ready for the house lights to dim and curtains to open! ( I won’t mention how long it took to get each child ready with make-up and costumes–just believe me when I say, it took one helluva time!!)

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts . . . William Shakespeare

Last minute scene, make-up and prop adjustments and finally, all actors are ready and on stage for The Great Cross-Country Race. 

The lights go down, the curtain opens . . . the audience is ready– let the show begin!!!
