So I guess I'll have to settle for high school theater that actually speaks to the modern lives of our students in other communities:
Peter Atlas always thought Concord-Carlisle Regional High School was open to diversity, but when he put out his casting call for the musical “Falsettos’’ he had doubts about the turnout.
How many teenagers would audition for a show about two homosexual couples, a straight couple, and a 12-year-old boy?
Dozens, he learned. When it came time to cast the seven-member ensemble, Atlas had his pick from among around 50 candidates from across the student body.
