KCRA Common Ground — “Left” at St. Francis H.S.

Published On March 19, 2016 | By Mike Carroll | KCRA-TV, Mike's TV News Stories

Two weeks ago I ran a story that I reported, photographed and edited for KCRA-3 TV News about “Left”–an original musical show written by Thom Green and David Blanchard, inspired by the classic novel Lord of the Flies, and adapted for all-girls. It was an extraordinary show that I hope more high schools will stage.

I was so impressed by everything about the show, Thom and David’s writing and music, the production, the incredible output by the high school students, that I expanded the story so that it could get a bit more attention.

This is a longer version that aired on Common Ground, KCRA-3’s once-a-month magazine program, on Saturday, March 19, 2016.

I am also posted a second version — longer — which I had to cut down in order to fit into the show. (Nobody listens when I try to explain to that, “You don’t understand–Common Ground is all about me!!!!)

I am posting this longer version as a tribute to the quality of all of the artists involved in “Left.”
