The main character, high school junior Mark Davenport, decides to run for class president to pad his college résumé. His competitor, a very nerdy Christie, also decides to run, declaring that she’s always wanted to be class president. The influence of a slick campaign manager, the media and political action committees also factor into the comedy’s plot.

See ‘The Election’ at Mattituck High School on April 14, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door: $7 for adults; $5 for students and seniors.
