    Casting Notice: Class Action by Brad Slaight

    An evening of diverse scenes and monologues about life at a high school. Step outside the classroom and see where the real learning happens among over 50 high school students who navigate self-image, stereotypes, heartbreak, fear, determination, and opportunities that lie within themselves and their peers in moments between and after class. Presented in cooperation with Samuel French.
