Drama: A Graphic Novel
My stage manager teen adored this colorful graphic novel about a middle school theater geek who’s determined to put on a broadway-worthy stage production. If only she could sing—but, alas, she turns to set design instead. Wrangling the stage crew proves difficult, however, and when actors enter the picture, off-stage drama threatens to upstage the whole show. The cast and crew overcome major crushes, slow ticket sales, and a tight budget to create a production they can be proud of.
