The Breakout: A Rock Opera

The Breakout: A Rock Opera is a musical drama about outcast teenagers’ struggle to grow up in a world that doesn’t seem to want them.  Albert, a loner who spends most of his time in the high school library, is obsessed with the beautiful and bright but tormented Cara, whom the other kids call “Scara” because of her scarred arms.
When the school authorities decide Scara should be committed to a psychiatric hospital because of her penchant for self-harm and dark poetry, Albert vows to rescue her from her plight. Albert tries to recruit Scara’s misfit friends to his cause, and they mock him until their taunting drives him to anger and he flies into a rage in the school cafeteria, smashing things up. Impressed with his destructive capability, the misfits finally agree to help, and each misfit lends their own special skill — whether it’s computer hacking, picking locks or faking a seizure — to help Albert break into the hospital. Can they hope to triumph over the adult world?  Whatever comes of his quest, Albert makes friends for the first time in high school, and discovers he can be a leader.
