Additional Info

There are presently 51,173,992 high school students in the United States, more or less, and here are eighteen representative characters. Anyone who's ever been to high school will recognize them all: the Jock, the Shy Kid, the Gossip, the Cheerleader, the Joker, the Brain, the New Kid, the Hunk, the Actress, the Trouble, the Observer, the Poet, the Reputation. Just a High School Play deals with the thoughts and reflections of eighteen realistic and profoundly individualistic rural high school students as they approach the end of their senior year. Set in a small town high school, this series of scenes and monologues provides an age-appropriate acting challenge for students. With simple staging and a flexible cast, this play lends itself to high school productions with limited space, time or budgets.
