Tonight, at 8 p.m., CPTV features the second installment of its three-part documentary “Broadway or Bust,” a behind the scenes look at the National High School Musical Awards that took place last June.
Among the 60 High School performers, PBS chose to feature about 10 of them, including Orange resident, Amity Grad, Alli Kramer, 17.
I sat with Alli in her kitchen before she departed for the week-long opportunity of a lifetime and heard about her worries about not being a dancer and all the butterflies she felt about different aspects of her upcoming experience.
When she returned from the show, we talked again and she shared her feelings about the 10 hour days, the dancing and the song she was given to sing.
Alli is now studying for her first college semester in Ireland. Last week, after the premiere of Broadway or Bust, she was floored to learn that she has her own celebrity profile page on TV Guide.com
Tonight’s episode is Broadway boot camp and the exhausting hours talented actors and actresses must endure to make it on the Great White Way.
