SHOW 1
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID (MUSICAL)

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID – PERFORMING APRIL 5-14 (with possible extension to April 20 if double cast) 

CASTING AGES 6-21

This musical is about a diary, no WAIT! It’s a journal! Join everyone’s favorite wimpy kid with his nerdy best friend, and see who’s got that cheese touch!

Middle school, ugh. It’s the worst. But Greg is determined not to be at the bottom of the popularity chart. He’ll leave that to his weird neighbor, Fregley. Or maybe Greg’s best friend, Rowley Jefferson. But it’s not going to be Greg…no way.

Jeff Kinney’s popular character takes center stage as Greg’s cartoon diary becomes a hilarious and heartfelt musical. Will Greg’s plans to become popular lead him to sacrifice his one true friend? Can anyone avoid the dreaded Cheese Touch? Grab a hall pass and don’t be late for an adventure familiar to anyone who actually survived middle school.
