The guy who runs the theater department at a high school in Massachusetts was worried that no one would audition for the school's fall musical because four of the lead roles were gay characters. He was wrong:

Peter Atlas always thought Concord-Carlisle Regional High School was open to diversity, but when he put out his casting call for the musical “Falsettos’’ he had doubts about the turnout. How many teenagers would audition for a show about two homosexual couples, a straight couple, and a 12-year-old boy? Dozens, he learned. When it came time to cast the seven-member ensemble, Atlas had his pick from among around 50 candidates from across the student body.

The bigots are blowing a gasket...

The play is actually about a family where the father leaves his wife and children to live with his homosexual lover. The family deals with the husband's flagrant sexual relationship with the other man, as well as their lesbian neighbors, along with a heavy doses of profanity and general perversion. The "musical's" songs include such gems as "My Father's a Homo" and "Four Jews in a Room Bitching" and "I'm Breaking Down." ... These activist school officials are pushing a depraved, pornographic piece of propaganda on kids, the main purpose of which is to normalize homosexuality and break down kids emotional barriers about it—s well as undermine the family.

Perhaps Concord-Carlisle should stick to more traditional high-school-musical fare. Like Carousel (domestic violence), Sweet Charity (prostitution), Cabaret (abortion), Guys and Dolls (gambling, binge drinking, premarital sex), Godspell (dirty hippies), Little Shop of Horrors (murder), Mame (sex, binge drinking, non-traditional family structures), Grease (sex, smoking, drinking), The Fantasticks (rape), Gypsy (child labor, stripping), West Side Story (gang violence, rape, murder)...
