Yearbook is a musical about high school students today. Based on interviews with nearly 100 students, Yearbook presents, through scenes and songs, a year in the life of a group of high school students in the '90s. Incorporating both comedy and drama, the portrait of contemporary youth that emerges is a realistic, yet ultimately positive, look at today's teenagers. 

The score for Yearbook includes contributions from a dozen composers and lyricists with extensive credits in popular music, musical theatre, film and television. Consequently, the score reflects an exciting range of musical styles, from musical theatre to alternative rock. 

Staging for Yearbook can be as simple or complex as you choose, and the cast size can be reduced to as few as 18 or increased with a large chorus to include as many performers as you'd like. There are some non-singing roles. 

This fresh joyous musical celebration was performed at the International Thespian Festival to great acclaim.
