Based on the 2012 Steubenville Rape Case, “Good Kids” follows students in a school community driven by the success of its football team and saturated in Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. The story focuses on Chloe, a young woman who can’t remember what happened to her after a party. The entire community is talking, tweeting and debating about it.  Was she raped? Did she “ask for it”?  The football players allegedly involved aren’t talking. When it's "He says She says," how do you know who to believe? In a community accustomed to putting their athletes on a pedestal, the label of “good kids” comes in to question leaving everyone asking, "How can something like this happen?” more info

Please note: This play contains mature themes, sexual situations and strong language.

This production is made possible with support from the Advocacy Center for Sexual Violence, University Auxiliary Services, and The John Orser '55 Theatrical Endowment.

This emo-rock musical recreates and reinvents the life of Andrew Jackson, from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to becoming our seventh president. It satirizes America’s original maverick president who kicked British butt, shafted the native inhabitants, and smacked down the Spaniards, all in the name of these United States. more info
