Dear Theatre-Kids of the Damned:

Thank you for the out-pouring of photos and enthusiasm.

You are not alone.
You've been in these pictures.
You've been in these productions.
You've been socially obligated to go see your roommate in these productions.

You feel no shame, nor should you.
(Well, maybe a little. But that's okay.)

Embrace your inner earnest Undergrad!
Cringe with love at your overly-noble sense of Drama!
Use the term "Brechtian" for no good reason!

And pass the blog onto others like you.

In Due Sincerity,
Professor DreadWhimsy.
