I was a bit of a rebel and a geek in high school. Didn’t like following the “in” crowd. I would like to attend the July 22nd screening. Thank you.

I still AM a Rebel. LOL. I have a small favor to ask. My wife has MS and my daughter wants to attend to help my wife along? Any chance of a three entry pass? If not, I will take my daughter with me to the July 22 performance at 7 pm. Thanks in advance either way!

American Teen Screening

For the first half of high school, I hung out with the jock-y girls on the Varsity Field Hockey team (for which I played defense). But soon after I became the theatre nerd that I am today. I would love to attend the July 22 screening if still available. Thanks!
