Ladies and Gentlemen of the Internet,
Since the summer before tenth grade Josh and I have had one major goal: to put on a charity production of the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch for our Senior Exhibition. Well, the time has come to truly get moving, but poor Josh seems to be stuck.
“I just want to sit in my room and play the recorder!” he told me on the phone twenty minutes ago.
You see, my friends, we have gotten some work done. We have acquired the proper licensing and secured a venue. However, the main barrier between us and success is cold hard cash. We need to raise about $800. And I wish I could say that we are well on our way, but a certain doubtful, apathetic, cranky boy just cannot seem to get motivated.
But he doesn’t seem to listen to me. So I’m turning to you for help. And do it quickly, please. Because the holidays will suck two weeks away from us and the show is planned at the end of March. We still have everything to do. Finding our cast, finding musicians, lights, sound, costumes, rehearsals, blocking…there is so much to do.
I want to do this so badly, and I know that Josh does too. But his chronic senioritis could be the downfall of this project.
So, friends, it’s up to you: motivate Josh by leaving a heartfelt comment. I need your help.
