The Crystal Shard by R.A. Salvatore
Dear students, the time for your plays is coming. I’m very pleased that you are more prepared than my classes last year, and I highly doubt any of them will be a spectacular failure. But I am sure that even now, tempers are smoldering, tones of voice are getting sharper (and so are words), and visions of the future are becoming dark, gloomy and downright disastrous.
Look. This is where perseverance comes in. People may have frightening visions of the future, the lights control panel may decide to give up at the worst possible time, and many other unforeseen circumstances may arise—but you just have to deal with them. Steel yourselves, rise to the fight—the battle hasn’t been decided yet. You can do this—I believe in all of you, as cheesy as it sounds. True—I scourged you with whips, and I may begin to scourge you with scorpions—but on the day itself, I will stand there with you, do battle alongside you, and share in whatever you accomplish—triumph or agony.
Please read last year’s pre-play entry.
And may I repeat that closing remark:
Actors, may you internalize, not just memorize, your lines.
Production, may you paint and craft and sweat your world into being.
Lights and tech people, may your timing never falter, and your power supply never get cut.
Propsmen and women, may your arms never fail you, and may your legs never buckle beneath the weight of your burden. May your steps be sure, swift, and silent.
Directors, may you be tough but loving, firm but understanding, patient but unwavering.
Lastly, dear students, may your plays be wonderful works of art that you will remember for the rest of your lives. I know I will.
Pressing on towards the goal with you,
Your Black Lion
