SUMMARY

"The Party tells you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears." George Orwell - 1984.

2+2=5? Yes, you read that correctly, and no, it is not a typo. 2+2=5 is a show that explores the idea of an oppressive government so controlling, that it is able to brainwash its citizens with false information, and the people must comply; even if they know it is not true. The people wouldn't dare of rebelling, as even thinking of rebellion is illegal. But the people have had enough, as they are tired of being controlled and manipulated. Will the people be able to overtake this tyrannical government and live normal lives, or will the government win out in the end? Join the fight. Lead the rebellion. End the injustice.

NOTE: It is recommended that this show be performed by a group with a very strong mellophone section.

TO THE SUMMIT

SUMMARY

On a smaller scale, To the Summit is a show that explores the idea of climbing Mt. Everest, going from the thrill of seeing the mountain, to the risks and dangers involved in climbing the slopes, and the victory of reaching the summit. On a larger scale, this show can also be about setting a goal, planning out how to achieve that goal, then the journey that must be made to achieve that goal, and hopefully see it fulfilled!
