Group of Connecticut students objected to two male actors kissing on stage during visiting production of Zanna, Don't!
A musical shown in Connecticut high schools as part of an anti-bullying campaign has sparked walkouts after two male cast members kissed on stage.
CBS Connecticut reports that students at Hartford High School left a visiting production of Zanna, Don't! on 14 October, objecting to its depiction of homosexuality on stage. The musical is set in a school in which gay relationships are openly accepted, but heterosexual relationships take place more covertly.
Principal Adam Johnson told CBS: "There was a public walkout by a bunch of students … mostly male. It was visually evident – due to the jerseys the team was wearing – that a lot of football players got up and walked out. It was almost a symbolic kind of thing."
