The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts as well as the City Theatre and Orlando Repertory Theatre are set to present the musical The Brand New Kid, based on the popular children's book by Katie Couric, in the Carnival Studio Theater at the Arsht Center, June 9-17.

Adapted by Michael Friedman and Melanie Marnich, The Brand New Kid is the story of a boy who has just moved to the United States and enters the second grade at his new school. He soon becomes the target of teasing by the other kids, but popular classmate Ellie McSnelly decides to take a chance on him and be his friend.

Following the run at the Arsht Center, additional performances of production will take place at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre, and the Orlando Repertory Theatre.
