book, music, and lyrics by John Gregor
directed by Igor Goldin
A new, old-fashioned musical comedy about five wayward, eccentric, isolated, awkward, sweet, naive, nerdy teenage boys who are sent away to a boarding school in Maine. As they revel in the trials of their freshman year--striving for acceptance, friendship, and normalcy--we are reminded that every life must be lived to its fullest, every song sung with glee.
