During the school year, Montgomery Extra is publishing occasional reviews of high school theatrical performances in the county written by students under the guidance of faculty mentors.

The reviews are part of the Montgomery County-based Maryland High School Theatre Critics Program, which aims to help students learn the art of writing criticism. The program recognizes the achievements of young performers, directors, stage crews and critics.

Montgomery Extra also lists upcoming high school productions. Any high school, not just those participating in the critics program, may list a play or musical by e-mailing mdplays@washpost.com. Include the name of the production and school, performance dates and a phone number to call for additional information.
