Cast: 3m., 6w., extras as desired. As the first play in the innovative River Ridge High series, this one-act teen comedy combines all the fast-paced hilarity of the movie Clueless with social issues familiar to anyone who has ever experienced the unique trauma of growing up and going to school. Jenny is part of the popular crowd that rules the school, while Beth is the new girl trying desperately to fit in. Together they must come to terms with what it means to be cool, what is uncool and why it is so important to simply be yourself. Issues of self-worth, mutual respect and tolerance of those who are different are explored against a backdrop of humorous teen-oriented dialogue that will leave audiences dizzy with laughter. Single set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
