"This show marks a coming of age of their own for many of our own teenage actors in the play," producer Jackie Daley explained. "Many have been with ACT for several years, and their skills have skyrocketed. The energy is palpable--some of these singers will give you goose bumps! The energetic and demanding choreography has challenged many of the kids in the show to do 20 things they may have never dreamed possible. Both casts have worked hard to produce an end result they can be really proud of."
