                           Episode Summary


The School Of The Arts is plagued by a teachers strike.  Coco is upset
because she wasn't chosen for the part of Desdemona in the schools
musical version of "Othello". Once the teachers go on strike though she
decides that instead of being angry, and not be apart of the production,
she organizes everything so that the show can go on without Miss Grants
help.  Bruno feels he needs to have Mr. Shorofsky's opinion on the music
for the show because he thinks it should have a different tempo and
style to it. Because of the strike he can't get Mr. Shorofsky's opinion
and goes with his instinct, which turns out to be for the best.  Once
Leroy was cast for the part of Othello, he was having problems speaking
the way the script was written. So he asks for Miss Sherwoods help to
make him speak the way Shakespeare was meant to be spoken, even from
someone from the Bronx.
