Edmond’s English class couldn’t care less about “The Count of Monte Cristo” – until a school lockdown and a film competition with a strict deadline force them to re-enact the story. Timeless themes of revenge and entrapment become surprisingly resonant, and the line between reality and performance starts to blur.
With light-hearted songs, hilarious dialogue and powerful revelations, this musical depicts one class’s journey to understand a classic text, and in the process, themselves.
