Best friends Jill and Taylor have made it a tradition since forever-ago to walk to fifth period together, when Taylor, suddenly begins showing up late. Jill learns that Taylor has began seeing a classmate named Chris, and suddenly all of their time is being taken up by Chris. Taylor begins failing classes, lying to their family, and ditching Jill. Jill notices an extreme shift in her best friends behavior, and tries to reach out to them, and Taylor pushes her away even more. With the help of her boyfriend, Ryan, her teacher, Mr. Patterson, and others, Jill tries to save her friendship, but most importantly her best friends happiness. Using elements of movement and dance, along with live music, Light Switch is a relevant and sincere theatre and learning experience that explores toxic friendships and relationships, learning how to walk away from harmful situations, and how to adhere to ourselves, and others, so we can all strive to be the best possible versions of ourselves.
