As a former High School Drama teacher, I highly recommend seeing these kids in action. The camaraderie that holds these young actors together is like nothing you've ever seen. I count the participation of my students in the High School Drama Festival at Cal State Long Beach produced by Professor Ken Rugg as life changing.
It's happening early in the day, but it will be worth the effort to make it to Pasadena to see Theatre at its best.
