SYNOPSIS: Dodgeball! Flirting! Selfies! The cool bench! Body spray for men! All the Horrors of Middle School! Plus, the usual victims: The nerds, the jocks, the preps, the punkers and many others, team up to demonstrate the “worst” catastrophes of their generation in this one-act comedy about fitting in and finding acceptance. While poking fun at teenaged insecurities and superficial stereotypes, this fast-paced vignette-style play examines the obstacles and pitfalls of middle school and reminds all those who have already traversed that world that nostalgia isn’t what it used to be. With a large, extremely flexible cast of zany characters and a simple set, this cheerful production will warm the heart of anyone who dares experience the 30 Horrible Catastrophes of Middle School!

"It was a very different type of play as all characters were on stage the entire time and we tried to have constant activity. The audience loved it!! Lots of laughter!"
By Elaine VandeVorde - Director - West Central Community School District
"This play is hysterical! It's one of those 'it's funny cuz it's true' kind of plays. The actors, the audience (both adult, and students) ate it up!"
