Scared freshman. Giant seniors. Do we exist? No. The seniors look right over our heads. But oh the talent we have. And they know it. Arsenic. Four of us on stage. Love's. More. We're taking over already. Falling in "moats", Snickers bars, and a carrot. Like nothing ever seen before. VCI/Blind Date. Cast and crew parties, drama, drama, theatre, drama. We know we're hooked.
Initiation. We're in. We're a family.
Sophomore year. More confident. The Nerd. New freshmen showing us up? We think not. Annie. Oh, goodness. Train-wreck, but we loved it. Cuddles on stage, horrible singing, Herbet Hoover and the Orphan Dance. So many dogs, so many mistakes. But still beautiful. SSS. Dracula. The moving stage, the blood, MJ talking about dykes. Trogdor hate war.
We start to say good-bye to the ones we've come to love. Old family out. New family in. New face, same love.
Junior year. proof. Magic. Two of us out of four roles. It's alive. Antigone. Fight scene. Victory. Confusion for all, happiness for most. Diviners. Beauty. Not a dry eye in the room, we've done what we set out to do.
Insanity. Parties, and who knows what. Closer than ever. Just us left. But we know nothing lasts forever.
Now. Rumors. Pretzels flying, a hideous duck. La Bamba, with flashlights on the ceiling. Crying already? Yeah... Yeah. SSS. Again. Feeling of pride, making people laugh. We love it. Time flies.
One more time, ladies and gentlemen. Once more do we make our way onto that stage, once more do the lights dim for the first time. This is it. We made it.
I love you. Each and everyone of you.
