THIS JUST IN!!!! MSM IN LUBBOCK TEXAS? A MAJOR MAJOR HIT!!!
“We got rave reviews from the staff and folks who came. It was the perfect musical for a middle school and I think it was the perfect one for us to start a history of having a musical at Atkins! Thank you!”– Alyson Friesen, Director, on the first-ever musical at Atkins Middle School, Lubbock TX.
And a comment from the Saratoga Springs show.
Bare-Bones Productions and Overit Media are proud to present the youth musical, MIDDLE SCHOOL MADNESS: THE MUSICAL, as it hits the stage again in a special showcase presentation at Overit Media Theater, 435 New Scotland Road, Albany NY on Saturday June 6th and Sunday June 7th. Both performances are at 2pm.
Written by James Pentaudi, the show is a musical documentary of the middle school experience, with all its hilarity, drama and emotion. From parental lectures (“OH DADDY, I’M BORED”) to the circus atmosphere of “ON THE BUS”, to the morning announcements, followed by the lunch menu being rapped by Foo Daddy, Bad Meat and Cool Beans, MSM takes on one wild ride after another. All the issues of growing up are faced, including peer pressure, bullying, relationships, grades and parents.
Here’s the scene at the end of March’s performance in Saratoga Springs, with Mayor Yepsen in attendance.
Past student comments:
“I wish my mom and dad had been here so they could see what I’m going through.”
“This show should be a must-see for every student and parent.”
“I had no favorite song. Everyone was amazing! It should be on Broadway!”
