About the Play
 
When a traveling musical troupe comes to a local school to teach kids about the U.S. Presidents, the troupe is surprised to find that the evil Senator Wilson has booked them because they are the worst musical act he could find.  As soon as the kids in the audience fail their multiple-choice test on the Presidents, the Senator is going to make an example of the show - and cancel The Arts across the land!
 
It doesn't help that behind the scenes, spoiled rich boy Richford is battling for Jessica's affections with newcomer Jake, who is just trying to serve out his court-ordered community service.  Practical joker Crystal is making stuffy Eugene Shakespeare's life miserable, and as soon as the first song is over, beloved community theater fixture Granny goes missing. 
 
Can the brand new Narrator survive the night without quitting or going crazy?  Is there a talent scout in the audience who could make the play strike it big?  And how can these kids possibly pass their multiple-choice test in the face of some of the most poorly researched songs about the Presidents ever written?  Find out at the WORLD PREMIERE of PRESIDENTS!  THE MUSICAL.
