What’s a little drama without a little drama? Well, the two go hand in hand if you’re a high school theater student. So, yeah, Chad Hartigan’s documentary is overflowing with the D word and it makes for great entertainment.
Every year in Virginia Beach, the theater departments from eleven different schools go head up in a one act play competition of their own choosing, whether it be an adaptation of a well known work or a creation all their own. We follow a few of these theater departments as they prepare for the big competition, revealing what it’s like to deal with the stress of theater production, while having to go through teenage high school crap at the same time.
It’s amazing to see how focused these kids are on their craft. They’re more focused than most adults I know. “All the Stage is a World” goes to show that focus, determination and natural talent knows no age.
