Auditions anyoneCameron, the dramatic director of the Blue Valley Thespian Club, is intent on making this year’s artistic offering exceptional, endearing, and extraordinary.

She has penned a science fiction fairy tale extravaganza entitled “Snow White and the Seven Intergalactic Deathbots”.  At the auditions, Cameron acts out all the roles including the Evil Queen, the Charming Prince, science-whiz Snow White, and a host of android assassins. Cameron casts herself in every role, certain that she is the only performer with the “artistic aptitude” to play each character. Will this limelight hog learn that it takes a team to make a theatre production?
