“Imagine you are on stage, and you forget your words, what do you do?’’ Mr. Star asked the class who attentively listened to every word he said.
-This, you see was a performing arts school, located in London, that only selected the soon to be stars of the next generation. It would me an honour to attend this school, as many celebrities came from this school. They had to pass and extensive audition process. Part of the admission into the school required them to play a musical instrument-
Perry’s hand shot up before he even finished speaking.
“Improvise, sir” Mr Star smiled as she had got the right answer.
“Expand on that, what is improvising?” Mr Star asked the class. Everyone’s hand shot up in an instant. In unison Janet and Kelly, gave the answer. Before Mr Star could say another word, the school speaker interrupted the lesson.
“Please may Perry Jones. Janet Williams and Kelly Edwards report to the headmistress’s office.” The speaker bellowed. All eyes were on the three best friends as they stood up. Perry froze but Janet and Kelly motivated her towards the door. Opening the door, Mr. Star smiled at the three girls like everything was alright. However they each had a gut feeling that something was wrong.

“Girls, come in! Come in!”The headmistress said whilst gesturing her hands towards the leather sofa. “Meet the casting director, for a new movie called spy school.” The three girls exchanged looks of bewilderment. “Girls, you have been selected by the casting director, to audition for his new movie.

“Which part?” Kelly asked.
“The lead part! Also any more questions here is my number.” The casting director stated while giving them his business card. The girls got an appointment time each before leaving. They couldn’t believe it, they walked in utter silence. They each went to their separate classes. Their faces were still. (Really they wanted to jump up and down like a kangaroo.) The thought never occurred to them that it may hurt their friendship.
After school, Perry was looking through the information that the casting director had given them. When she realised that the audition was in Hollywood. Getting the phone she dialled in the phone number given to her. She enquired about the audition location, only to realise that she (along with Kelly and Perry) was getting a first class flight to Hollywood for the audition. Just when she put the phone down, Kelly and Janet burst into the room. Each of them had realised they were flying to Hollywood…
