Highland Park resident Peter Spero was up against some tough competition when he auditioned to write the score for “Heavens to Betsy.”

He was one of “seven or eight” composers auditionining to write the score, and admitted that he felt the other composers were more likely to get the job than he was.

“The first film was a long audition process,” Spero said. “I was up against seven or eight other composers, they were already in Los Angeles, they were already working on really big films, so that was a tough one.”
