We hurry to see the cast list and find our name. With every show, it's never the same. The read through arrives and we are excited to see, what this character is going to be. The rehearsal process begins, and we become instant friends. Nobody ever wants this Journey to end. The stage managers are in for a long and wild ride. For you, you'll never know all the tears they've cried. Tech Week comes and we are stressed beyond belief. But also granted with a sigh of relief. We all know that this show will soon have an audience standing on their feet. Opening night arises and we are filled with joy. The first performance is like playing with a brand new Christmas toy. Laughter and Cheers ignite from the crowd. A truly indescribable sound. . We see this family we have formed, and  realize we have become so much more. We are a team. We share the same hopes and dreams. We are The Theatre Downstream.
