In The Man in the Ceiling, 12-year-old Jimmy Jibbett (Miranda) would rather be a successful cartoonist than in 7th grade. His father (Creel) disapproves. His mother (Baldwin) is busy. His Uncle Lester (Lippa) tries to understand but is too wrapped up trying to write a love song for his next flop musical. Where can Jimmy turn for inspiration and hope? Maybe the Man in the Ceiling can lead him to his true destiny. If only Jimmy would look up! It premiered at the Bay Street Theater in 2017.
