Homecoming: A Return To "Drama High"

National Youth Theatre

It is not unusual for a high school to put on a few plays. 

It's less usual for a high school to put on consistently good plays.  And rare indeed is the high school drama program that launches young actors toward Broadway. 

But that happened consistently, for years, at the Pennsylvania high school Michael Sokolove wrote about in his book Drama High

Sokolove actually attended the school, then went back to write about its unique claim to fame.  He joined us in 2013 in an interview we share again here.
