About the Play
Sylvia Barrett is a brand new teacher at Calvin Coolidge High School, and she's about to find out whether her formal education and idealism are enough for this rough-around-the-edges student population.  Sylvia must decide whether she can find a way to make this unlikely classroom her new home, or whether she'll rejoin her old friend by accepting a job at a small private college in the country.   Set in the 1960's, this popular high school play is filled with vibrant action and memorable moments.
