"Cuts in public funding bring a middle school to the brink of closing until it's taken over by corporate stooges from the mega corn conglomerate Cornco. The company wants the middle schoolers to do a play of its idealized origin story to shill their products and indoctrinate the institution. But a couple of smart students hatch a plan and subvert Cornco's agenda by reenacting the story of Animal Farm, and the growing corporatization of US agriculture, instead. An Orwellian Hee Haw capitalist allegory with music."
