I do not own, or claim to own, Glee or any of its characters. The writing of this script, however, is entirely my creative work. Please don't steal it and claim it as your own. (And while we're on the topic, I apologize for the vaguely obnoxious but kind of necessary watermark. May it not be too distracting!)
If you have anything nice to say, chances are you'll find a way to say it, chances are I'll see it, and chances are I'll be extremely grateful for the kind words. If you don't have anything constructive to say, there's really no reason to tell me. I don't plan on editing this script and re-submitting it anywhere - it's a finished piece. I certainly don't mind discussing the creative choices involved, or even answering a question here or there, but mostly it's here for you to read and enjoy.
To address the script directly... this is meant to be like an actual episode of Glee that might air on television - in particular, one that evokes the feeling of the show's original 13. It takes place after "A Very Glee Christmas," in Season 2. Quinn, Santana, and Brittany are still on the Cheerios. Kurt is still at Dalton. Finn and Rachel are broken up, but Finn and Quinn aren't yet dating - however, I very specifically avoid dealing with the romances. And, there's one character of my own creation, a drama teacher. The episode is meant to put the female characters at the forefront without an explicit feminist message like what was done in "The Power of Madonna." Yes, I'm aware that the male characters are not front and center, but in no way are they intended to be mistreated or bashed.
Enough preamble. I hope you enjoy it!
"Spotlight" -- Tina wants to audition for the lead in a school musical, but she's told she's not right for the part. Meanwhile, it's Teen Mentor Week at McKinley and Sue Sylvester meddles with all the Glee kids' goals in an effort to show up Will's mentoring skills. Rachel and Quinn spend the week trying to work through their differences, while Mercedes and Santana clash over their efforts to help Brittany pass a math test.
