Remember all the wrangling it took to get administrators at Orange County’s Corona Del Mar High School to let students stage Rent? And how, when they finally did, America’s leading comedy troupe
Westboro Baptist picked the thing? Well another high school, this time in Kansas, is putting on Rent — which deals with gays and AIDS and lighting candles — and guess who plans to show up?

Westboro!

The drama club at Shawnee Mission North High School will be performing Rent this week, but first it’ll have to say hello to Fred Phelps & Co., their Kansas neighbors.

Jeez, if you want to see it that bad, Westboro, we’re sure there are still tickets available.
