Fendrich, Steven. Yearbook. Pioneer Drama Service, 1999. 42 pp. B 9-12 Reviewed by Elneeta Timmons The yearbook staff has just received the published version of this year’s yearbook; before they hand it out next week, they take a sneak peak at some of the snapshots taken throughout the year. Through vignettes, in which characters from the background come to life and reenact the events leading up to the taking of the picture, the audience learns more about clubs and groups of people from the school: drama club, chess club, jocks, nerds, and even those who aren’t so involved. The play, written shortly after the Columbine High School shooting incident, revolves around the theme that even though on the outside people may seem a little “weird and different,” everyone has similarities and should be accepted by one another. The plot is simple but effective. It would be best suited for high school students to perform for high school students. The use of special effects like fog and projection could help make the production more technically interesting. The set consists of only boxes or chairs. The play is suitable for anywhere from ten to fifty characters of varying gender.
