A midnight back to school presentation at the Music Box Theatre!

September 16 & 17, 2006 at Midnight – ZIT REMEDY

DeGrassi Jr. High: The Great Race
The girl’s swim team has been challenged to a battle of the sexes swimming race by the boy’s soccer team. But when Melanie, the star swimmer, gets her first bra and the boys all tease her, she refuses ever to be seen in a bathing suit again. Yick and Arthur have their own physique problems – it seems like everyone’s had a growth spurt but them.

DeGrassi Jr. High: Great Expectations
Joey knows he’s finally going to “do it”. Liz, the new girl from out-or-town, looks like the type, and it’s pretty obvious she likes him. When she invites him home after school to work on their project together, he just knows this will be the big moment. Yick urges a worried Arthur to phone “Talking Sex With Dr. sally” to find out the truth about the strange dreams he’s been having lately – you know – when you sort of – leak.

PLUS! Growing Pains and Double Talk

September 23 & 24, 2006 at Midnight – WASTEDER

Degrassi Jr. High:Taking Off
Wheels is still having problems dealing with his parents’ death. Things aren’t going well at home, where his grandmother is talking about putting him in a group home. And when a postcard arrives from Wheels’ birthfather in Port Hope, he figures anywhere is better than here – even if it does mean hitchhiking. Shane is looking forward to the upcoming Gourmet Scum concert. It’s going to be an extra special concert, too, because Luke knows where they can score some acid.

DeGrass Jr. High: Pa-arty
Lucy’s parents are away again, and that can mean only one thing – party at Lucy’s! This one’s going to be a blast, with some of the high school kids coming, and Lucy’s parents are supposed to be gone all weekend – barring disaster, of course. Joey is feeling lousy, because Caitlin won’t come to the party with him. He figures to impress these high school kids and liven up the party, he’ll be the supplier of the beer. The police, however, have other plans for Joey’s evening.

PLUS! 99 Bottles of Beer and LSD: A Trip to Where
