After embattled student body president Skip (Garland Watson) resigns in disgrace – and has a public break-up with his girlfriend (Lydia Thomas) – Mark Davenport (Mark Green) figures he will cruise to victory in the special election with a little help from the secretary (Victoria Grae Smith). After all, his only opponent is nerdy Christy Martin (Brinkley Brewer), who wants to eliminate football and snacks. But when a mysterious Super PAC gives her an unlimited budget, things start to get very ugly. Mark must face total annihilation with his friend and campaign manager, Karl (Isaiah Wallis), or accept the services of a slick professional campaign manager (Angelina Briggs) with questionable ethics and a million-dollar Super PAC of his own. With the school news reporters (Allyson Hyatt, Hayden Allen, Ellison Jones, Matthew Phelps, Brycen Myers, Andi Parrish, Jude Bilbee, Natalie Sims) dogging his every move, especially Kyli (Emma Bock), a reporter who cares more about ratings than reality; a bevy of wishy-washy voters who turn on a dime (Hannah Edwards, Alexa Duggan, Jacob Waters, Maci Bright, Casey Williams, Reagan Hersh, Mysteri Cotton, Carter Malachi Baker, Ricky Bates); and a revolving door of actors hired specifically for his campaign (Ella Domino, Cierra Lundgren), Mark has to decide if losing his soul is really worth a good mark on his college resume. The Election, by prolific playwright Don Zolidis, is an hilarious and timely satire on the contemporary political scene, all set in a normal, every-day high school with normal, every-day students.
