District 212 debuts winter play 'GEEK!'
Mar 1, 2016 7:26 AM -
District 212 presents "GEEK!" on Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the auditorium at East Leyden High School, 3400 Rose St., Franklin Park. The cast and crew is composed of students from both campuses. With roller-blading monsters, angry Pikachus, steam punk armies and stood-up Sailor Moons on the prowl, it's easy to get lost in the Inferno-esque anime convention where the fans, otakus, and geeks lurk. But to score a rare meeting with their comic book idol, teenage outcasts Dayna and Honey will take on obsessive magic players, Jedis and elfs, cosplayers and convention guards - through all nine flights of Ohio's Dante's Fire-Con. But when the dark nature of their quest breaks through the fantasy of these girls cos-playing, they find that no game can mask the deep loss they've recently shared ... unless they truly discover who they are.
