Think suburban high school cheerleaders and what comes to mind? Girls Gone Wild contestants. Competitive, Nancy Kerrigan-esque freaks in Bring It On. That bodacious blonde cheerleader playing hanky-panky with James Van Der Beek in Varsity Blues. Anything but a Jack Kerouac-type Dharma Bum searching for enlightenment. Annie Weismans new play, Be Aggressive, depicts lead character Laura yearning for rebellion. Fed up with the vapid superficialities of her hometown, the protagonist hits the road in search of the real fire that fuels true cheerleaders everywhere: the Spirit Institute of the South. The play is produced by Arizona Womens Theater Company.
