SYNOPSIS: A high school drama club has decided that this year's student-directed play will be Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. After the first round of auditions, Tiffany, the director, and Amanda, the stage manager, find themselves with one major problem... no Romeo. In desperation, they hold one final round of auditions and are surprised when three of the most unlikely Romeos show up for auditions: Bernard, the school's nerdy brainiac, Kenny, who is not only obnoxious but also Tiffany's brother, and Erin, a female transfer student. As the three read a portion of the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet opposite Phoebe, the school's perfect Juliet, one wonders... "Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?"
