Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain… or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?
There is will be an ensemble with solo opportunities in addition to the roles. The show is filled with high-energy and engaging music. Please Note that there are some inappropriate lines and innuendos made throughout this show.
