Is There Life After Highschool?
by Jeffrey Kindley, Craig Carnelia, and Ralph Keyes
Directed by Julie Fulcher-Davis
Is There Life After High School is a “memory” musical loosely inspired by Ralph Keyes’ best-selling book of the same name, and focuses on nine adults attending a school reunion and reminiscing about their days in the schoolyard, good and bad, the missed opportunities and the lessons that life has taught them. Funny yet bittersweet, this charming musical explores the love/hate relationship that most adults have with their memories of high school. Were you student council president or the captain of the football team? Perhaps you were a band geek or head cheerleader. Or maybe the only one who couldn’t find a prom date. Relive those funny and poignant days with this musical from Broadway’s 1982 season.
With a wonderful soft-rock score, take a trip back with us to those halcyon days where anything was possible and the future was ours for the taking as we remember the joy, the laughter, and the angst of what it was like to go through high school.
