The HHS Drama club will be performing the new musical, “Crybaby!” This jumping, jiving Tony nominee is a rebellious teen comedy event! It is based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby which starred Johnny Depp.

It’s 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Allison turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s girl. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison.

Crybaby is a fun story, with great songs and dances. The show is directed by Patty Sundstrom, Alex Eddy, and Jessy Parks. Our cast is led by seniors Riley Jackson (Crybaby), Chaela Watkins (Allison), and Tigre Falla (Dupree), and a cast of 45 others!
