normal role for her. The other event, and the one I consider to be the bigger event, is when Sarah is brought up. This turn in the conversation completely takes up Kathy’s interest. It is obvious that she has a strong dislike for Sarah. The “Magic If” for me for this scene was pretty easy. I would honestly react much like Kathy did. I know that if I had two friends freaking out as Kathy did I would also be the one who calmed down my friends. Then comes the section of the scene regarding Sarah. When I asked myself what I would do if a person I didn’t like got brought up in conversation I realized that I would probably do something very similar to Kathy. I would probably want to relieve my frustrations with that person to my close friends too. This is Kathy’s background/history. I am Kathy. I am 16-17 years old and mostly likely a junior or senior in high school. I live in Texas. I am a member of the cheerleading squad. My closest friends are Joanne and Mary. We have been friends for a very long time. We plan
Christy 6 everything together. I am the planner and organizer of the group. I am the level headed one. When it comes to making sure all of the details are taken care of that responsibility falls on me. I am meticulous about my appearance. I am considered one of the more popular girls in school. As a cheerleader I get special treatment that others don’t get. I am in the gymnasium of my high school. The colors in here are blue and yellow. There is a bench in the corner with my notebook and backpack. My friends’ backpacks are also here. It is fall, 1963. It is probably a Friday since there is a game this evening. It is after school hours. We are supposed to be practicing our cheers for the game this evening. It is the early 60’s so there are no phones or laptops present. Our uniforms are slightly more conservative than uniforms are today. Past circumstances are a bit shadowy as they are not mentioned very much in the script. I know I have been friends with Joanne and Mary for a while. I have probably been a cheerleader for awhile as well. I am assuming I have lived in Texas my whole life. Presently, I am on top of the world. I have very little cares other than the occasional high school drama. I am always with my best friends. As they panic over the band I simply calm them but I join in the trashing of Sarah. My main objective is simply to keep my carefree life and my spot in the group. I do this by keeping my cheer to perfection as well as being extremely attentive to the group. I calm them when it is appropriate and I gossip with them when the time is right. There are very few obstacles to this as most of the scene is just a group of friends talking. Perhaps my biggest obstacle is that I am far more level headed than the other girls and therefore don’t get as worked up over something as they do. This might cause me to be left out of some conversations.
