Hey You.....Yeah You...

In a few hours, you're going to be on stage and you're going to be great. 

It's taken a lot to get here right? Doesn't matter if it's a Broadway show or a high school senior musical, rehearsals are rehearsals and you've given your blood, sweat and tears to get to this point. 

Some of you feel you're not ready for tonight, you are. 

Some of you might be nervous you don't know you're lines, you do. 

Some of you might not feel that everything's coming together, it will. 

It's been a stressful week, I get that, but let it go. You deserve the chance to have the best performance tonight, so don't let the outside world ruin that. 

For some of you this may be your first show, welcome to the best club in the world. 

For some of you this might be your last on a particular stage, treasure every moment of it.

Many have come before you, many will after. But for a couple hours tonight, that stage/booth is yours. So go own it. 

You never know who is in the audience tonight. The ripple effect of an amazing performance is endless. I still remember going to see my first show, don't you? 

You can do this. You will do this. You're ready.

Break a Leg.
