5. Wow!
Edited on Mon Feb-13-06 10:22 PM by catabryna
I saw Grease (the movie) at the drive-in when I was 13 and saw it performed on the stage when I was 15. While I can see where some might consider it bawdy... it wasn't so offensive that it couldn't be performed by my high school's drama class the year after I graduated from high school (circa. 1983). Sure, it's not a "classic" but done with a modicum of decorum, as was attempted here, I have a difficult time understanding why we can't expose kids to situations much less provacative than what they live in their every days lives! I find Grease nearly sickeningly sweet!

Neither, Grease nor The Crucible, I believe, are inherently inappropriate for high schoolers to perform or see. They touch on different subject matters, yes... but, 3 parents don't make a majority! Yikes, it seems as if we are trying to roll back the clock on everything these days and I am nearly 41 years old and have a five year old in my home! I survived.. and I'm sure I'm not alone! When did we become so delicate?

Edited to add, at the risk of offense: When did we become so snobby?
