Directed by Ann Schertzer, this “coming of age” story involves the 1950s Catholic education of eight Chicago children, following them from the start of elementary school through the senior prom and beyond. Capturing the funniest aspects of youthful growing pains and the trying moments of adolescence, the musical touches on such topics as first confessions, puppy love, patron saints, teacher’s pets, sex education classes, and the importance of wearing panties under the school uniform’s plaid pleated skirt.

The main focus is on late-blooming Eddie Ryan and chubby Becky Bakowski, who become best friends, fall in love, and then go their separate ways when Becky decides to join a convent. Every number tickles the funny bone of anyone who ever went to school, public or private. Rated PG. Auditions: Sunday, August 26, 2018

Book by John R. Powers, based on his novel of the same name. Music and lyrics by James Quinn, Alaric Jans.
