Baltimore photographer Frank Hamilton headed backstage in the Swirnow Theater to get this shot of the Barnstormers student theater group on the opening night of Cabaret ("Come to the Cabaret"). Amid a hectic pre-performance photo shoot, Hamilton knew it would be tough to get the entire cast in one frame but says he was having such a good time with the students, it seemed impossible not to include everyone. "I wanted to create an image where the cast could play within the two worlds of stage life and the characters' lives," he says.
