About this show

Single Box Turn Productions presents the New York City premiere of Band Geeks: A Halftime Musical as part of the 10th annual New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC. Band Geeks is the latest show by Becky Eldridge, Amy Petersen and Andy Eninger (the same friendly folks who brought you the 2005 FringeNYC hit comedy musical, Little House on the Parody). Are you, like, a geek? Or a nerd? A queerball drama fag? Well, whether you were a dweeb, burnout, dork, prep, slut, cheerleader, jock, choir hussy or art freak, this show is for every underdog who ever dreamt big. It's 1989 and in the industrial town of Elyria, Ohio football is king and the high school marching band is an after-thought. But this is the year the band is going to march at the half-time show of the Cleveland Browns Monday Night Football game and be featured on national TV! The school band director, Doug Bradford, is trying his damn hardest to motivate his marching band kids, especially the new drum major, Joey Cranford. But, with funding for the arts drying up, Bud Edwards (the domineering school superintendent) is doing his best to cancel band forever! Will the Elyria Pioneer Marching Band ever be appreciated? Will the band get the money it needs? Will the drum major catch his staff? Will anyone in the band get some action? What really happened at band camp? This 80s flavored musical features original music, original marching and big, big hair. It's a little bit naughty and a little bit sweet - the show for anyone who ever felt misunderstood in high school.
