With book and lyrics by David Zellnik (Drama Desk nominated Yank!) and music by Eric Svejcar (Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. with Zellnik) LOVEVILLE HIGH takes place on prom night in the fictional town of Loveville, Ohio. Each ten-minute episode tells a love story – new love, old love, romantic love, friend love, gay and straight, cis and genderqueer; each is a self-contained musical while also connecting with the other episodes to form a glimpse into the biggest night in the lives of one high school class. After the launch of the first three episodes, subsequent chapters will be released on a twice-per-month schedule culminating in the “Loveville Prom” finale release party on April 8, 2019. https://www.lovevillehigh.com/

Right now you can listen to Episode 1-3

Episode 1: Those Poor Kids (Or, Anticipation…) Before the prom, at home, Jane is almost ready to shine, no matter how cheap her dress looks or what happened to her at last year’s dance. If only her date, Johnny – who arrives in his dad’s rusty pickup truck, and who is definitely not hung up on being poor – would put his tux on. She’s waited for years for this. What if he doesn’t want to go?

Episode 2: Blaze a Path Through My Universe (Or, First Comes Love…) In a hidden school courtyard, Jendrix rushes out of the prom to get some fresh air. And to hide from the guy who was dancing too close, new-kid-at-school Cory. Yet Jendrix is also kinda happy Cory followed them out here…but what does Cory want? And does Cory understand what it means that their name wasn’t always Jendrix? How can love begin across so much unknown territory?

Episode 3: The Thing About Chastity (Or, Then Comes Marriage?…) In the coat check room, 8-months-pregnant Chass needs a moment. Her date – Jendrix – ran out on her but they’re back now that they are needed. Which they most surely are, as Chass reels off the list of indignities she’s suffered tonight. But who is hiding in the coatroom with her? Could it be the star quarterback/proud future plumber/father of her unborn child? Drama!
