WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At the Feelgood Academy of Performing Arts, two ambitious students put their friendship on the line in pursuit of a coveted role. Lucy is a self-assured singer and dancer who fancies herself a trouper (she's been in one West End show) and arrogantly considers herself a cut above her fellow wannabe hoofers. On the other hand, Amanda is good-hearted, sweet-natured girl...but riddled with self-doubt and cowed by her overbearing mother...who just happens to run the theatre school. As the final terms starts, Lucy, Amanda and their fellow students enter a competition for a place in a popular reality TV show for which the first prize is the starring role in the huge West End musical Motharotti. Just to crank up the tension, it's revealed that the Academy is in dire financial straits...and the highly-desired part in Motharotti could raise its profile and save it from bankruptcy. Everything is riding on the two star pupils. Will Lucy's cavalier attitude to her craft destroy her chance of stardom? Can Amanda overcome her crippling lack of confidence and show what she's capable of?
