The Mercy High School performing arts department will take to the stage this weekend for its fall 2019 production is "You're Only Young Once."
This light and charming comedy is about the sheer insanity of high school life and its societies. The plot is a simple one of life's little complications, romantic entanglements and academic pressures. The real delights are the almost allegorical types the characters portrayed. There's the principal, the coach, the English teacher, the athletic star, the honors student, the ladies' man, the president of the PTA and many others.
The setting is the principal's office on the morning of the big game, and all kinds of confusion ensue.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (Nov. 8-9) and 2 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 10.
