Students at Corona del Mar High School will be allowed to stage a production of the play “Rent” after all.
Earlier this month drama advisor Ron Martin complained that principal Fal Asrani ordered him to drop “Rent” because of its gay characters.
When Martin went public accusing Asrani of censorship the story was featured prominently in both the mainstream and gay media as well as in blogs.
The students’ production of “Rent” will go up in April. [365gay.com]
Never under estimate the power of a bunch of pissed off high school theater kids. If anyone knows how to cause a scene it is them. Believe me I know, I use to be one.
