The internationally recognized theatre program at South Plantation High School has undertaken a new project in hopes of raising awareness in the community about the needs of adults living with disabilities. Under the direction of Michelle Terl, the cast and crew of Tom Griffin’s comedy, The Boys Next Door, seek to remind the theatre-going public that behind many closed doors reside individuals full of heart and hope who find beauty in a life that is not always kind to them.

Set in and around a facility-owned and operated apartment where four mentally challenged men reside, The Boys Next Door uses a mix of humor and poignancy to reach audiences of all ages. Through our experiences with these characters, we find ourselves laughing, crying, and considering the many eccentricities of human behavior.

Known for pushing the envelope with ever more challenging material choices, the bright young actors at South Plantation find themselves immersed in a world that is both unfamiliar and enlightening. Through their interpretations, they have discovered the importance of an environment that fosters friendship, self-worth, and independence for these uniquely special individuals.

Eager to celebrate those groups in their own community which promote these values for this underserved population, the students involved are taking on related activities which include a donation drive for the Ann Storck Center of Broward County, pre- and post-show talkback discussions with adolescents from a variety of Broward County schools, and a partnership with South’s own Best Buddies program. These efforts have been embraced by the students involved as they explore every possible opportunity to make a difference with their art.
