Back to the 80’s

Kennedy Kern, Content Creator

The fall play is up and running. This year’s fall play is ‘Back to the 80’s’. It is a spoof of Back to the Future. The first practice was five weeks ago. The performance dates are November 12 at 7 pm, 13 at 7 pm, and 14 at 2 pm.

“Hold on to your hoverboards, we’re taking a trip Back to the 80s! When modern teen Mary Fitzfry gets sent back in time by an eccentric professor, she finds herself in the middle of a totally tubular cavalcade of 80s pop culture. There’s a lot of familiar faces, from the teens in breakfast-time detention to the guys chasing ghosts and dancing zombies, but the biggest surprise of all is Mary’s own protective mom as a teen. Turns out she’s actually kind of rad – but thanks to Mary’s time travel, she’s in trouble. Can Mary make things right? This adventure takes you from the mall where everything happens, to a suburban sitcom street, to a cave under the high school – and you can choose who to feature from a flexible throng of characters to bring your audience maximum nostalgia. A hilarious parody to make all ages cheer ‘I love the 80s!'” (O’Carroll).
