Students of Santa Susana High School, a performing arts magnet school in Simi Valley, during a dress rehearsal of ‘Got Comedy? The Lost Episodes’ play as an annual fundraiser. Eddie Navarro, 18, left, and ‘Alex’andra Nester (cq) in the front row. Last year Nester was fighting for her life, undergoing chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lymphoma. She already had been singing professionally but she lost her voice in her recovery and could barely stagger across the campus to the dance class she insisted on taking.
