The play is based on the 1988 film which follows the true story of a group of inner city students at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles and the journey of the famous Calculus teacher Jaime Escalante, which will be played by Mr. Croley. The show is very much relevant to many pressing issues facing our schools, communities, and country. Stand and Deliver is for anyone who believes in the power of possibility and the limitless pursuit of happiness.The play is an emotionally packed roller-coaster that speaks the common language we all share...one of laughter, tears and love.
