Miss Mac had taught theatre at Rosemont Middle School for so long that her colleagues joked that she would die in the classroom. So when she does just that, everyone agrees that the school should find a way to acknowledge her years of service. When they discover a play about the Battle of the Alamo that Miss Mac wrote, they know that performing it would be the perfect memorial. But presenting a play isn't easy, and soon the whole school is in an uproar as conflicts related to the play emerge. Weary from disruptive kids, students dropping out of the play, and parents with unreasonable expectations, everyone wonders if they should just cancel the production. Is it too much to ask everyone to bury past conflicts and work together to forge a new history?
