I don't know about you, but I love High School plays. I got to participate in three when I was in High School, Oklahoma! being the only one of which you might have heard. The camaraderie of the cast and crew, the fun of opening night, the bloopers (like when the lead guy fell off the edge of the stage) and the cast parties -- all were a very exciting and enjoyable experience for me as a teen. And now, sitting in the audience, I still feel the excitement and enthusiasm of the young performers. It more than makes up for the moments when... well, you wish you had more enamel on your teeth. And if you know the kids personally, and can share a moment when something really goes right, it's more than worth admission! School performances rarely cost more than an evening at the movies, and we've all seen our share of duds at Cineplex or Famous Players. I'd prefer to dish out for live student theatre anyday!
Especially Crazy for You in 2010. What a hoot!
