School Daze

School Daze

by Lindsay Price

You remember middle school. That first day can be a funhouse or a hall of horrors. Will I fit in or be left behind? Did I wear the right clothes? How will I find the right class? Why do those eighth graders look so big...

Middle school is the tricky tightrope between being a kid and being a teenager. How did you fare? Did you fall off the tightrope? Did you hold on?

See the characters in School Daze try to keep their balance on the first day of middle school.

Praise for School Daze

Jonny Schremmer
The New School
The sixth graders had a fantastic time rehearsing and performing "School Daze"! It is full of energy, humor, and even a few poignant moments. Audiences loved it, too!
Abigail Bordak-Raaflaub
Thomas Jefferson Middle School/Music Boosters
The students loved seeing snapshots of middle school life and found it easy to connect to. Our student performers had some really great conversations around different issues they personally have dealt with or seen other kids deal with. During a time when our students have really been closed off from each other and activities they are involved in, we needed this show more than we all realized.
Roberta Lowe
Orchard Lake Middle School
Very relatable; kids loved it and audience loved it!
