After some humorous and, at times, bitter differences of opinion, the students and the new, idealistic high-school drama teacher develop a better understanding of each other. The students arrive at a surprising appreciation of the same Shakespeare they had wanted to get off the stage. This exciting show, with its lively backstage action and unique character developments—in the tradition of A Chorus Line—is a director's dream and an audience's delight.
