How It Begins
You are Lottie Plum: "18" year-old actor, singer, dancer -- in short, a future star! And this is your big break, Lottie Plum -- remember that name -- a callback here at Bridger Conservatory. That's why you're here in the waiting room with the other wannabees who didn't get weeded out during first auditions. You're carrying a resume, a water bottle and your handbag. You're wearing a black camisole, a short skirt and your way-too-old character shoes.
Unfortunately, you've also got a frog in your throat. Aargh! This can't be happening! You need to get this audition at any cost! You'll do anything: bribery, trickery, sabotage! Eliminate your competition, Lottie! Tonight, there's gonna be some broken legs.
