Southwest High School Theatre presents Up the Down Staircase, directed by Margaret Berg, written by Christopher Sergel based on the book by Bel Kaufman
Rookie lit teacher Sylvia Barrett’s first day at Calvin Coolidge High School isn’t what she expected: a delinquent student body, a crumbling infrastructure, and an administration that drowns its staff in paperwork and rules. She soon finds herself involved in the start of a romance, a near war with an administrator, and in the unexpected, sometimes heartbreaking lives of her students. Can she make a difference?
Up the Down Staircase is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.
