Synopsis: During the school year, tons of people try out for the school musical to see if they have what it takes to be up on the stage. However a handful of unfortunate kids don’t make the cut, but this does not stop their passion for theatre and their desire to be in the spotlight. These outcasts group together and try to put on a show all by themselves. Although the idea of putting on a show is nice, making it work is not easy, and the conflicting personalities of all the cast members get in the way of something great. Hijinks ensue as the kids go through and try and preform many different beloved plays and musicals. And with each scene they do, they all find new parts of themselves through their acting.
