Backstage Webseries: Season 1

Backstage is about a college theatre department that puts on a production of "Hamlet". The series follows a freshman named Amanda, who meets and befriends other cast members. This includes Porter, a cocky freshman, Rachel, a talented senior who tries to take Amanda under her wing, Marcus, the confident and dashing lead that turns heads, and Lisa, the snarky stage manager who hates all actors.

Backstage was produced through Missouri State University.
