Overview

It’s senior year in Plano, Texas, and Riverside High School's competitive theater troupe is climbing back to the top from last year's unprecedented loss. Leader of the troupe Dara is trying to rally his teammates to get them back on track, while new student Paul disrupts Dara's complete understanding of himself and his small-town suburban life. As Coaches Dirkson and Blow make a controversial choice in their one-act play selection and the community takes issue, friends and rivals duke it out to find themselves in this uniquely Texan and thoroughly universal coming of age comedy by Texas native Vichet Chum.

Schedule:
Saturday, January 25 at 10:00 a.m.*
