“It was great. It was really amazing,” exclaims student

What’s better than skipping class to see an acclaimed production of the Los Angeles Premiere of an award-winning play? Students from three Los Angeles area high schools — Campbell Hall, John Marshall High School,  and Westmark School — enjoyed a special matinee yesterday of I And You at the Fountain. For some, it was their first time seeing a professional production of a play. For many, it was an experience they’ll never forget.

The full house of students had a great time watching the funny and heartfelt comedy/drama starring Jennifer Finch and Matthew Hancock about two high school students discovering they share a mysterious connection. Many were blown away by the sudden twist of the powerful ending. The Fountain production of I And You has been highlighted as Critic’s Choice in the LA Times, hailed as “a testimonial to the power of intimate theater.”

After the performance, the students engaged in a lively Q&A Talkback with the two actors.  

The students came by bus from three schools representing three communities in the LA area. This special daytime student matinee was made possible through Theatre As A Learning Tool, the Fountain Theatre’s educational outreach program making the live theatre experience accessible to students in Southern California.
