there are no small parts

What does one do when watching their youth playing the wallflower in a local production? Well. One watches the show. That part is easy. Watching it without bitterness is another matter.

Then one needs to grow up a little and recognize how that can't matter. What matters is they're having a good time contributing to something they enjoy. They got to dress up and act as something different even if they weren't always (or ever) center stage. And there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes of equal importance.

It eases the bitterness. Besides, look at how cute they are!
