Summary
Jensen collects folklore from the Cottonwood Drama Club and analyzes it in terms of its traditional, artistic, social, and creative functions. She divides the types of folklore into the traditions surrounding initiation, graduation, and pre- and post-show rituals. She suggests that drama kids use folkloric traditions and rituals to establish camaraderie in a group that stereotypically consists of outcasts and eccentrics. She believes that drama kids use rituals to unite themselves, protect themselves, and ward off stage fright
