Kadyn Andersen said the show contains very good music and is a change of pace for the high school. The cast is very well constructed, and the show is overall light-hearted, funny, and relatable.

Mrs. Thietje said, “I’m really excited for the audience to experience the show, especially the parents. I think they will (obviously) love the cast, but it’s based on a movie they have likely seen, and I think they’ll get all of the 80’s references and fashion. It’s going to be so fun!” 

So, will the show be a hit? Will Glen propose? Will Robbie get Linda back? Or will a new relationship begin? The only way to find out is to attend this high school production.
