A Schooling in Love - before it was a musical...

The Photos below were taken during rehearsals of:

A Schooling in Love, or That's What's Up With Girls
A non-musical play which premiered at Oswego East High School Drama Department in 2007, directed by Todd Mielcarz. It was adapted from the beloved Mozart/Da Ponte opera Cosi fan Tutte by playwright Matt Boresi. This non-musical Schooling provided the framework for the musical version featured at Abington in 2009.

The plot:

Freddy and Billy are two high school seniors head over heels for their girlfriends, Dori and Lilly. When a romantically disillusioned gym coach and a proud but dejected music teacher bet the boys their girlfriends won't stay faithful in light of the approaching prom - a game of false identities and tested fidelities ensue that turn DaPonte Community High School upside down!

Things are coming together. It's hard to believe opening night is just a few days away. The characters seem even more real now that they are in costume and the set and props are almost complete. I'm so glad that Mr. Mielcarz asked me to help with this play.

The students are doing a phenomenal job. They are great to work with and are all so talented. I can't wait for everyone to see the show.
