Gold Medal Winner, 2012 Massachusetts Educational Theatre Guild Festival, Cameron Middle School (Framingham, MA).
Through a series of short, fast-paced scenes, a quartet of characters grow up before the audience's eyes, as we witness the friendship, fun and social skirmishes Rocky, Skye, Ratani and Grant, encounter on their journey from kindergarten through middle school. Whether they're debating whose father can reach the moon first, kissing and telling, picturing unlikely future careers, double dating or waiting for the last bell of middle school to ring, these charming characters inspire us to laugh and appreciate the extraordinary moments of ordinary life.
