You never get your cues right! It's all your fault! At least I remember my lines! You're going to ruin tomorrow! Stop arguing, the rest of us actually care about rehearsing!
At this rate, we'll be lucky if we have the performance at all...
C'mon guys, let's get it together! This is a team effort!
Hey, listen up! We need to pull ourselves together. We're performing tomorrow! I don't understand why you guys can't just get along. We can't perform when we're in this state of disunity!
What can I do to lead them through this?
The only problem is John because he's been missing his cues! Then we have to redo every scene, and Bill complaining off-stage doesn't help either!
Well, I wouldn't miss my cues if I could hear your lines!
Let's get back to work, we don't have much time to fix this. Please try to work together productively. We need to get back our unity!
It's all John and Julia's fault, they're the ones that keep arguing about everything!
Okay, I get that there are some problems we need to deal with. Yes, John's been missing some cues, but Julia, you do need to speak up. And Bill, please do be quieter off-stage. But still, you guys are friends and have worked together all year. Something isn't right. So, if anyone needs help or has something to say, please let the rest of us know so we can help you. This is a team, and I know we can work together to overcome this disunity.
I'm sorry too. I should've been better at listening to my cues and to my friend.
Yeah, I should've tried to help you guys if you were upset, not just complain about it. And I'll work on being quieter.
I think this might be my fault. I didn't say anything because I was embarrassed, but I have really bad stage fright when I have to perform in from of large audiences. Because I was scared, I lashed out and starting speaking more quietly. I'm sorry.
Now, there's the unity and friendship I knew was hidden somewhere! Thank you so much for letting us know you were nervous Julia. There's no need to be afraid or embarrassed. We're your friends and we want to help you. And you have no reason to worry about performing in front of a large audience. You guys just keep doing what you're doing right now and you'll have this in the bag. Now, let's get back to work. From the top!
Don't worry, I know you'll be amazing. And Bill and I will be right here with you!
You've got this Julia! You're a natural.
Thank you guys so much. I'm sorry I didn't let you know I was nervous earlier. Just telling yo has already made me feel better. And I'll make sure that I speak up when I say my lines.
Wow, I'm so glad that we were able to work through those obstacles and get back our unity. I think that it really helped to talk about the issues instead of avoiding them, as well as talking about why we were having problems and getting each other on the same page. I don't know what would've happened if Julia hadn't admitted to being afraid, if John hadn't realized he needed to listen to his friends more carefully, or if Bill didn't relax and help his friends instead of complaining about them. I'm so glad that this worked out in the end!
