One month ago, we were sitting in the audience, part of the "congregation", whispering to each other about how much fun it must be to be part of the onstage action and telling each other we'd have to do something to make it happen. Now here we are, backstage, in the dressing room, standing in a circle with the others, hands joined, mere moments before we go on. We take our places in the hallway, lined up single file, and on cue, strut and sashay and stride into the theater to raucous applause. I'm so elated, I'm barely even nervous.
