How the calm became the storm

I wanted to share my story of doing highschool theatre. I was stagemanageing a show called west side story.

The show had a lot of problems which were: no power tools to buld the set, no band time because they were working on competition, and some of our leads would just not show up.

Im doing my best to help everyone out and on tech week it happened it started with a very crappy run of the show with everything band and all and im in control of the sound board.

The longest time my teacher was watching the show with her head in her hands and muttering things under her breath.

As im the calm one of the team i tried to reassure her that things will work out.

That did not work she got on the pa and despite tell her not to yell she yelled right into the mic she told them to stop the show and sit in the audience now.

She told me to turn off everything while she goes rant at everyone. I left after cleaning and just started feeling angry at everything and i just put it aside for the show.

The next rehearsal went ok till we found out my teacher mom died.

When we try giving notes everyone was talking so i took the mic and very loudly screamed EVERYONE JUST BE QUIET FOR GOD'S SAKE!! And i stormed off i grabbed my things and left.

The next day was the actual show and things were ok till our lead missed his cue and i snapped again and no one was safe the jocks, preps and all people felt my wrath even some teachers.

After it was all said and done we were given papers saying how it made us feel and i wrote STRESSED AND ENRAGED. thats my story guys thanks for reading and sorry for any mispellings.
