EPISODE ONE (2/15/14)

SUMMARY:  At a high school sock hop in 1965, several attempts are made to spike the punch - a task eventually succeeded at by Emily, who drops a sheet of LSD into the bowl unseen by chaperone Pops, who is busy talking to misunderstood bad girl Sue; talk at the school is that they're having an improper relationship.  Brainy, nerdy Paul flirts with the equally smart and far more mature Connie.  And pretty, popular mean girl Betty is upset with her boyfriend, Jimmy, the school's bad boy.  He used to be sweet with her, but now he's just being mean.  She confides in the shy Sherry... who confesses she's in love with Betty.  But after a bust-up in which rebel Pete ends up decking Paul, Betty returns to say that Jimmy's dead... "And it's all your fault!"  But who is she accusing?  Was it an accident?  And who drank the spiked punch? 

Pops (Corey Klemow) stops Louie (Jay Bogdanowitsch) from spiking the punch. Connie (Aviva Pressman) and Sherry (Angela Sauer) aren't thrilled with how early the sock hop will be ending. Misunderstood bad girl Sue (Lauren Van Kurin) flirts with Pete (Gregory Guy Gorden). Bad boy Johnny (Will McMichael) makes a scene.  (L-R: Aviva Pressman, Erin Holt, Lauren Van Kurin, Corey Klemow, Angela Sauer, Emily Donn & Will McMichael)
