It kinda Sucks. But it could be worse!
Drama Tween found out today that she is an understudy in the school musical.
She had a moment of upset, but in the fashion of a true actress, has already recovered.
The teacher told her that in addition to her understudy role, she also wants her to learn one of the other roles as well, because she “really, really” thinks she’d do that one well and things aren’t set in stone and yada, yada…I hope the teacher didn’t just tell her that to make her feel better…
So she gets to go to every rehearsal, learn the lines, blocking and songs for 2 roles, and most likely just end up in the ensemble. This will either make or break her passion for acting.
We shall see…
