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/

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?
