And a walk on the beach with Veronica and talk about the future leads to a conversation Sam never imagined having. Includes the songs "Learn to Let Them Go" and "I Have Questions."
Bolstered by the Fourth of July parade, the crew gets back to work harder than ever.

Includes the songs "Look at Us Now!" and "Everything Moves Me."
As activity ramps up to the first curtain, Sam and Veronica get a little break . . . and get a little closer. But opening night brings with it a make-or-break challenge and an ultimatum impossible to ignore. Features the songs "Standing Only Steps from the Ocean" and "Something to Remember."
Sam and the crew are working harder than ever to get ready for their first opening night.

Later, Dr. Barrows checks in on how Scotty is doing with the costumes and learns something he never anticipated and Sam is amazed by a confession from James. Features the songs "It Never Lets Go," "We Never Know What's Waiting in the Wings," and "Only in My Mind."
Sam and the crew visit the theater for the first time and find it both inspiring and terrifying. Sam visits with Veronica afterward to share his excitement. But when the crew finds out about a compromise Sam made to get the gig, they're reminded of all of the other times Sam played fast and loose with the truth. Features the songs "Cape Cod Bay" and "Damn, Sam!"

The other is that he finds an ad seeking a director and crew for the reopening of the fabled Plymouth Barn Theatre. This is the opportunity he's been seeking. Now he just needs to convince his college friends to join him on the adventure. Features the songs "Little Do They Know" and "You Never Know."
