good one about high school students
29 March 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

I like this kind of show. It reminded me a little of the TV series, "Fame". A high school is about to be closed down by the school board, and the students wanted to put on a final 'sing' concert without the consent of the authorities. Problems arose as one of the boys in the show committed a crime with his older brother. This caused friction with another student in the production. Even with all the troubles, the show still managed to go on. Very good semi-musical.
