Gurley, AL

Brawny Preparatory High School, home of the fighting Hippopotami and national winner of every sports award known to man, is about to be closed because it has failed to graduate a single student in its entire history! So who rides to their academic rescue? Nerds, of course...five very bright, but unwelcome, nerds. In an attempt to chase them from the campus, the jocks glue the pages of their books closed, put a frog in their mashed potatoes at lunchtime, send the school mascot, Harry the Hippo, after them and hang Wilmer upside-down from the school flagpole. But after the Accreditation Committee condemns the school, the jocks and the nerds learn they must work together for their own welfare. So, the frustrated nerds teach academics to the uninterested jocks, while the frustrated jocks teach athletics to the uncoordinated nerds in a series of hilarious scenes. And who wins? They all do!

Come join the Theater Resource Class from MCHS as we present "School For Nerds" in the cafeteria Friday, May 9th. Doors will be open at 6:00pm with sweet and salty snacks being served. The play will begin at 7:00pm. Tickets are $5.00 per person and can be purchased in advance from any cast member or at the door the night of the performance.
