When high school senior David Ellison''s parents told him he could do anything he set his mind to, acting isn''t exactly what they had in mind. Even though he''s the leading man at his prep school, David is expected to go to an Ivy League college after graduating. But David has his eye on auditioning for the Ivy of acting schools—Juilliard. As if throwing away the last four years of private school isn''t enough, David is also on track to throw away his relationship with his girlfriend, Ellen. This year, David''s co-star is a new student, the beautiful and vivacious Vanessa. She''s exactly the kind of girl everyone dreams of going out with, and a girl David gets to kiss—under a spotlight—on a regular basis. As the college application process heats up, David''s real life is suddenly as full of drama as his life on the stage. Someone named The Artist is sabotaging the best and brightest students of Oak Fields High by ruining their chances of getting into college, and it looks like David might be next. As senior year races to the final act, David is under a ton of pressure not to get crushed by his competition, that is, if The Artist doesn''t get to him first.
