TeenFest

May 21-23, 2021

Act 1 (Level 1) - TEST ANXIETY

by Meg Bell (CST Theatre School alumna!)

10 students and 180 minutes. What can happen in 180 minutes? 10 students sit down to take their SAT and experience the stress of scoring well.They all have different circumstances which makes the burden of the SAT weigh down on each of them. Throughout the test day they open up to each other and realize the only anxiety in a test is from the secrets we keep. Test Anxiety is a light-hearted play that examines the pressure of standardized tests on kids' mental health and of growing up to realize there is more to life than a grade.


Act 2 (Level 2) - THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

by Ian McWethy

On the final day of classes at Rochester High School, a renegade student takes over the morning announcements and proposes that everyone do something bold. Or unexpected. Or brave. Or stupid. The point is, you may not have another chance, so now's the time to stop being a wallflower and kiss the girl (or guy!). To let your enemies know that you have always hated their guts. Or to do something as simple as climb the rope in gym without throwing up. Through a series of interconnected scenes, misconceptions, grudges, and secret crushes come out into the open in hilarious and surprisingly touching ways. A comedy with a lot of heart, and no regrets.
