You Are On

Everything that you have done so far prepares you for what is comimg next, but:

You aren't given a script to read before you go on.
It is a come-as-you-are party.
You may know nothing about the most important members of the cast or the audience.
No rehersals are scheduled.
Improvisation is not your long suit.
You are expected to give your best performance.

William's Whimsical Words:

Break a leg, trooper!
