Two recent hurricanes (Ike and Gustav) there didn't dampen interest in the high-school-set dark comedy with songs in which "blogs are belted, secrets become currency, and 'bathing suit areas' are exposed." The cast includes Natalie Boyd, Sean Knapp, Sean Glazebrook and Liann Pattison.
The first performance was Sept. 10, following a week of canceled shows due to Hurricane Gustav. Opening was Sept. 13. Performances continue to Oct. 12, playing Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets are on sale now from $20-$27 ($10 Student Rush tickets go on sale 15 minutes before curtain, with student ID, cash only). Tickets may be purchased at (504) 522-6545 or www.southernrep.com.
