Salvage Vanguard Theater Presents Tryouts October 11th- October 27 2018 Thursday-Saturday Night at 8pm FREE
Two mothers and three teenage girls maneuver the confines of a prestigious and draconian high school when in a tragicomic turn of events, the mothers throw themselves into the work of forming a pseudo-religious order focused on topiary and the girls confront head-on the primly grim version of adulthood they’ve been taught all too well.
