PERFORMANCE INTENSIVE: MUSICAL THEATRE, BIG The Musical

Grades 7th-12th

This summer performance intensive focuses on the actor’s elements of the musical theatre production: acting, singing, and dancing. Shows will be performed on the Wilmette Theatre stage.  

Synopsis:  Josh Baskin is sick of being awkward, out of place, undervalued, and unseen as a teenager.  At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become “big”.  To his shock, his wish is granted and he is forced to dive into a world that he is not quite ready for.  Leaving his worry sickened parents behind as they search as they search for their baby boy, Josh battles to secure a foothold in an adult world.  He secures a job, spends his first nights on his own in the big city and experiences the pangs, obstacles, and decisions of love. In the end he discovers there’s much more to being an adult than he’s bargained for, and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.
