"Short" By Holly Goldberg Sloan Storyboard by Anya Gada
Hey Julia! You and Randy are going to audition for a play.
But mom!!! I don't want to.
La, la la la la!!!
Congrats guys! You both made it as munchkins!
Julia and Randy's mom tells them about the Wizard of Oz play she wants them to try out for. Julia doesn't want to do it, but Randy does. Their mom doesn't force Julia to do it, but asks her to consider. In Julia's world, that means that she has to do it no matter what.
Random Stage Hand
Julia sings "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for the auditions. She doesn't want to do it, but she has to because Randy is. She is still sad about the fact Ramone, her dog died, and wants to try being happy but it's not easy. Now, with the play on her hands, she'll have even less time to think about him.
Randy and Julia both make the play as munchkins. Randy is really happy, but Julia doesn't like the idea of spending her summer in a play. She would prefer thinking about Ramone. Their mom is very excited because they will be busy all summer and have no time to bother her.
The director, Shawn Barr is trying to direct the cast and climbs up a ladder. He loses his balance and falls. His fall results in breaking his tailbone. Therefore, his assistant director Charisse Hosie had to cover.
Shawn Barr finally returns, but he is in a bed. Because of Julia's dedication, Shawn Barr promotes Julia to lead dancer. Also, due to the rehearsals without Shawn Barr, the cast is behind a little bit. They all work really hard to get their performance done properly.
