Today is your day.
You've finished your classes!
You know how to Play!
You'll do Big and Small Projects, so Choose them with Care.
If it doesn't feel right, you don't have to go there.
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet
There's no first or last place, there's no one to compete.
Shows right now to do
In that case, it helps
to find a New Crew!
Oh! The Improv You'll Do!
You'll break lots of 4th walls and Your show-clothes will get torn.
You'll play in small bars where's there's no real stage floor
You'll play in large houses and hear audiences roar
Except when they don't
because, sometimes, they won't.
And IF you should wallow too far down this path
Forgetting the lessons of Rachaels' "Scene Math"
Or Gellmans' "The What" Or "Finding the Game"
A student you're not, there's no teacher to blame
Now It's on You. It's Your Destiny to Claim.
that you'll push even more
You'll do anything for that audience roar
and not sure if you enjoy it anymore
headed, I fear, to another harsh door
The one that could put you,
Always at War.
No! That's Not for You!
and value your truth and value your rage
And value your time and others's time too
And soon you'll embrace a strong Point of View
There are characters to play! There are sketch shows to run!
And the magical things you can do with your scenes!
You'll play honest comedy beyond your dreams!
And will You Succeed?
Yes! You will Indeed!
'Cause Fame is no longer the One thing You Need
