Cameron, the dramatic director of the Blue Valley Thespian Club, is intent on making this year’s artistic offering exceptional, endearing, and extraordinary. As the production’s fearless leader, she wants to move the audience to tears, laughter, and hopefully, donations. 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?

Gail Keebler is the newly appointed arts and entertainment reporter for her high school newspaper. An aspiring journalist, she is disgruntled by the everyday 1778and mundane nature of her assignments. She describes and reenacts the contestants of her school’s upcoming talent show. First, there are the math nerds whose talents include converting numbers to scientific notations. Next, there is the cheerleader who created a cheer to the Beatles classic “Let it Be.” Finally, there is the goth queen and the school’s most dramatic thespian reenacting every death scene in Shakespeare. While Gail’s opinion of her classmates’ talents is scathing, she realizes how amazing it is to have such a diverse group of students all pulling together for a single purpose.
