It’s Opening Night.
Your latest drama is about to be performed for the first time.
Local dignitaries and your loyal fans anxiously await and anticipate the opening lines of the first act.
Out-of-town travelers have scooped up all the remaining last minute discount tickets.
14,000 are seated on the hard, limestone tiers in the outdoor theater.
The House is packed. Restless. Murmuring.
