From the first round of auditions to the final curtain call, students involved in a Theatre TCU production find they have time for very little else - but few seem to mind."I'm basically studying as I'm walking to class, I'm studying as I'm eating and whenever I get the chance," said Kal Anderson, who has worked as a stage manager on numerous Theatre TCU productions. "Working on a show takes up most of my time."

"I'm hoping it will be scary," 18-year-old Vanessa Recendiz said before the film began.
"If not, I want a refund."
Stacy Dickerson, 40, said the same thing.
"I want lots of scary stuff."
