COMMITMENT ISSUES: A MUSICAL
by Wyn Alyse Thomas
This one-act musical comedy follows Catherine, Amy, and Hailey as they navigate the stress of the college admissions process in different ways– Catherine trying to get into her dream school, Amy trying to choose the best option for track and field, and Hailey applying to a whopping sixteen schools to hopefully commit to the Ivy League. The senior class faces pressure on social media, the feeling of falling behind your friends, financial burdens, and the scariest application question there is– who are you?

This is an amazing one act musical that discuses issues high schoolers face when trying to find a college to commit to. It perfectly exemplifies the fear different students feel when faced with a decision that seems “life altering”. Committing to a college is a nerve racking process with many ups and downs, and this musical shows how no matter where you’ll end up you’ll find your place no matter where you go.
