My dedication is admired

"Well, you guys all know we've been debating some different ideas for the Spring musical, and MaddieJoy here has one with some characters you might know...MaddieJoy? Go ahead."
I stood, straightened my lucky shirt, and smiled, walking in front of the stage to face the 14 glassy-eyed students who stared down at me.
"Hi, I'm MaddieJoy, some of you might know me from theatre class..." I spent the next five minutes giving them all the information I could think of pertaining to my rather unorthodox idea.
"What's Buffy the Vampire Slayer?"
"It's before Twilight, about a girl with magical abilities who slays demons with her dorky friends, in this case during a musical adventure."
"Is the villain a guy?"
"What if you don't sing that well?"
The questions were flying at me almost faster than I could answer them, and I could feel the enthusiasm building. Finally Mr. R looked at his watch and reminded me I still had to pass out the scripts. I grabed the pile of papers on my seat--questionnaires, scripts, and casting sheets--and handed them to the nearest actor, a girl with ruby red hair. She immediately grabbed a script and handed them to the next person, who also grabbed one...
"I really admire you dedication," a boy said to me.
"Thank you."
"You know, I don't do musicals, but I'd audition for THIS."
"I REALLY admire your dedication."
In the end Mr. R had to hussle me out. But I have a feeling the next announcement he'll be making is that auditions for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: the Musical will be this January--and then that our very own MaddieJoy will be playing the role of Buffy.
I've been having a pretty good day. :)
