Written by Metcalf Middle School teacher and drama director Steven Orth, “How to Save Your Teacher (Who Is Also a Spy) in 5 Easy Impossible Steps” hilariously brings to life a story that fulfills the fantasy of every adolescent secret-agent-movie fan.
Getting swept away from their mundane middle-school reality into the adventurous world of mysterious spies and not-quite-intimidating villains, Jack and his friends learn at least as much about themselves as they do about how to use spy-gadgets. With silliness fit for the whole family and plenty of 80s references to go around, both those who love the genre and those looking for a laugh will delight.
Performances are May 2-4 at 7:30 p.m. and May 4 at 2 p.m at Metcalf Middle School, 2250 Diffley Road in Burnsville. Tickets are $7 for these shows, but can be purchased in advance for a $1 discount through cast and crew members of in the Metcalf main office.
