A series of vignettes about raging hormones, inane fights, and first love all revolving around lunch period in this hilarious and heartwarming rock/grunge musical that reminds us just what middle school is all about.

From Kelly, the most popular girl in school, to Mophead, the free-spirited lead singer of the school's own punk band, to Misty, the depressed outsider who always sits alone, everyone is preoccupied with improving their social status -- particularly with the all-important Annual Eighth Grade Dinner Dance looming in the near future.


"...sweet, silly, at time grotesque, but irreplaceable."

Adam Perlman, Backstage

"This is a comedy, a big, fun comedy..."

Lisa Ferber,

"It's a rock musical that works -- clever lyrics, characters that are funny and sad and cute and silly, just like we're in eight grade."

Joel Markowitz,

"This musical is quirky, fun, delicious and a gem."
