Time: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Location: MCC Theater 1833 W southern Ave 85202, Mesa Az

Event Description:Richard Miller returns to Wintersville High School as the very hip, new Social Studies teacher in 1976, teaching “Problems of Democracy” to college-bound seniors. He diverges from dry academia and approaches the topic of the justice system using role play and a unique social experiment. Students play cops, lawyers, pushers, buyers and narcs using Good & Plenty candies as drugs of choice. Hilarity, biting political satire, mixed with satiric slapstick ensues as the process devolves into a web of betrayal, duplicity, and crumbling authority, with almost everyone ending up in “jail.” Described as a “brilliant twist on high school madness and a compelling meditation on democracy,” that examines the foundations of integrity and the frailties of our governing system, the play illustrates the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Volunteer Description: Volunteers are Supposed to Greet the Guests, Scan their Tickets, help them find their Seats, and after the Performance ends, they are encouraged to help pickup the leftovers from the hall, 
Additionally, volunteers get to watch the performance For free :)
