Drugs and alcohol are another story. The administration frowns on "grossly promoting" the use of either in a play, Glendenning said.

What do pennies, maple syrup, and an obsession with cleanliness have in common? They are elements of "Captain Canada and Copper Boy Boomsday," the dessert theater being produced by the Smithsburg High School drama club and written by two students. "It's about two bumbling superheroes just trying to pay their rent," senior Kyle Raios said. Kyle, 17, co-wrote the play this summer with Joe Waeyaert, also 17.
