Charming. Imagine pre-teen angst presented in alarmingly charming tunes. Evocative. The celebrated off-Broadway musical pairs moments of middle school humor with characters evocative of our own inner geeks. Foibles. Competitive scholastics pit goals for a personal best with an array of very human foibles. Syzygy. Come see each delightful syzygy, each pair of quirky opposites, which make for a delightful – and highly participatory – theatrical event.
The production runs October 11–14 and October 18–20. Thursday–Saturday performances are at 8:00 PM, and the Sunday performance is at 2:00 PM.
