Lyle High School Drama
Teachers on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown - A One-Act Comedy
Saturday, February 3, at 2 p.m.
"Five high school teachers find themselves at the end of their rope...and it's only the first day of school! From an English teacher with mood swings and a math teacher in the middle of a divorce, to an elderly chemistry teacher with back pain and a geography teacher with a whip, the semester gets off to a rocky start. Add to the mix a drama teacher who sleeps on her desk, and it only becomes a matter of time before one of them snaps. As the students navigate this bumpy road, they begin to realize it may have been their behavior that pushed these teachers perilously close to the edge. Will they be able to make things right before it's too late, or has this faculty completely lost its faculties?"

This play is produced by special arrangement with Heuer Publishing, LLC of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
At Lyle School, drama is offered as a class every year. Not only does this give students the opportunity to be involved in the arts and gain their fine arts state requirement, but it also allows students to "branch out" and live outside the box a little. Because Lyle is a small school, many of these students are involved in multiple after-school activities, and many of them wouldn't otherwise take the chance on theatre. Offering drama as a class gives everyone the opportunity to be in the school play - regardless of sports, work, and family schedules.
Thanks for supporting the arts!
