Malec Week 2015– Day 2
“AU! Settings Day"
Drama I was the worst class Alec had ever taken.
He was senior stuck in a freshmen class because he had neglected to fulfill his fine art credit until now. He wasn’t the only one; his best friend had also ended up in the class (only slightly maybe on purpose). Then there was his overachieving sophomore sister, who purposely took the class because she was going through a Broadway phase. The next Idina Menzel, she was not.
All three of them in one class for an hour every day made for an eventful and competitive class, with Izzy trying to outshine Alec, who could do no fault in the eyes of Mr. Thomas.
He’d managed to survive the first three quarters with an A while barely skimming on the participation surface.
But Mr. Thomas was demanding more from Alec and Jace. They nailed the stage combat unit and that was keeping their A. But they failed the Shakespeare unit after their failed Romeo and Mercutio bromance so the final unit was critical.
“I’d like you two to take lead roles,” Mr. Thomas had not-so-subtly demanded. Jace immediately offered to lead the tech crew for their final production of the year, throwing Alec under the bus.
