But the school is about to be closed because it failed to graduate a single student in its entire history.

Who rides to their academic rescue? Nerds, of course: Five very bright, but unwelcome nerds.

In an attempt to chase them from the campus, Brawny’s jocks glue the pages of their books closed, put a frog in their mashed potatoes at lunchtime, send the school mascot, Harry the Hippo, after them and hang Wilmer upside-down from the school flagpole.

But after the Accreditation Committee condemns the school, the jocks and the nerds learn they must work together for their own welfare. So the frustrated nerds teach academics to the uninterested jocks, while the frustrated jocks teach athletics to the uncoordinated nerds in a series of hilarious scenes.

Tickets will be available at the door and cost $10 for adults, $8 for students. The school is located at the intersection of Case Boulevard and Voorhees Corner Road.
