Tyler McCutchen, 16, has performed in 13 shows since he was in seventh grade. McCutchen says he hopes to perform in 20 before he graduates. "I just love the stage," McCutchen said. "I love the lights and seeing people in the audience and being up there in front of everyone just makes me feel … . It’s not even adrenaline because I don’t feel that.
