Familiar high school stereotypes will be played up and broken down in an upcoming presentation at Salmon Arm Secondary.

Teacher and director Danielle Berger’s Drama 11/12 students are busy rehearsing for two upcoming performances of the play Stereotype High. Written by Jeffrey Harr, the comedic offering involves a series of interlaced vignettes through which “stereotypical” teens endeavour to redefine themselves. The play includes mention of mature subject matter.

Performances are scheduled for Dec. 12 and 13 at the Sullivan campus theatre. Tickets, $10, go on sale Nov. 27 at the school office. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with showtime at 6.
