Every fall, our local high school puts on a musical and anyone in the community can attend. There is an adult director, but the rest is pretty much run by the students--as actors, set designers, lighting and audio techs, and more. As someone who loves to attend theater, but can not imagine participating in theater, I find these performances to be inspiring. Not only do the students put in tons and tons of hours to prepare for the five shows, but they put themselves out there just by participating in the shows, whether in front of the audience or behind the scenes. Even if the performance isn't like going to Broadway, I find simply the fact of the show itself to be inspiring.
What inspires you?
