ACT Youth Theatre is proud to present THE OTHER SCHOOL, a psycho-logical new musical by Dougal Irvine and Dominic Marsh.
When siblings Polly and Kester Parish from a one-parent family start at another new school, something doesn’t seem quite right. It turns out that Kester was knocked down and killed by a school bus and has entered a kind of twilight zone, while Polly who witnessed the tragedy and is suffering from shock has accidentally gone with him. And has to decide whether to live in the real world or stay with him in The Other School.
Tackling serious issues through light-hearted songs and humorous characters THE OTHER SCHOOL is a bold yet relevant musical for young people today.
