Big Nate: The Musical

By Jason Loewith, Lincoln Peirce, and Christopher Youstra

Nate Wright, a detention-riddled sixth grader (and drummer for the greatest garage band in the history of the galaxy, Enslave the Mollusk!) hopes to capture beautiful Jenny’s heart by winning “The Nicholodeon” , the first prize in his school’s Battle of the Bands.  But when Artur and Jenny team up with Nate’s arch-rival Gina to form the sap-pop band Rainbows and Ponies, he’s gotta take his game to an all-star level.  Using his superior cartoon skills, Nate concocts a super-charged, spectacular dedication to Jenny during his song’s climax, which will blow Rainbow and Ponies away and make Jenny realize her mistake.  But since it’s Nate Wright, the plan backfires, and Enslave the Mollusk gets disqualified. Nate manages to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a little honest help from Artur.  Nate and his band win The Nickelodeon, but Jenny rewards Artur for is honesty by agreeing to “have steadiness” with him.

Heathers: The Musical

By Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy

Contains mature content including language and intense adult themes.

Heathers the Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High. Based on the classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, you will leave asking yourself the question, “Are you in, or are you out?”
