A Reflection

A good team, like a good show, comes into being when the separate individuals working together create, in essence, another separate higher entity-the team-the show-which is better than any of those individuals can ever be on their own.
Gary David Goldberg

Dear Cast of Little Shop,
How fortunate we all are to be able to work together as a community. To support one another, to grow, to learn.....to listen.
We are a community-we are a family. We are diverse in age/grade/interests, yet we have all gathered to share a common goal....to produce something magical, something unique.
From here on out....
Support each other.
Too much talking creates negative energy and wasted time.
No side conversations on stage-no side conversations while we are all engaged in creating. No side conversation-period!!
We need leaders. We need to set good examples. We need to keep the bar raised.
We need our seasoned actors to know when to remain quiet.
We need our leads to be role models.
Tomorrow night we moved forward.
From here on out, we must demand excellence.
We have come too far to ask for anything less.
