UNION HIGH (1999)
Marathon, FL in cooperation with the Educational Coalition of Monroe County and the Marathon Community Theatre (teens)
The bullies, the nerds, the jocks, the freaks, and the valley girls animate this musical adventure through the hallways of high school culture. These cliques define the social landscape of Union High which is becoming a battlefield of narrow opinions, harsh criticisms, and physical violence. The plot revolves around two boys who get in a fight and are punished by forcing them into taking roles in the school’s “sissy” production of Romeo & Juliet. Desperate to get out, one boy sabotages the show which ends up injuring a student actress. Tolerance, forgiveness, and a sense of humor emerge as the only solutions that can bring Union High back from the depths.
