Academy

Book, Music and Lyrics by John Mercurio

Conceived and Developed by Andrew Kato

At St. Edward's Academy, two seniors make a harmless bet on whether they can influence an unsuspecting freshman to break a few rules to succeed. But when the transaction goes recklessly out of control, the boys become entangled in a fight for their own academic and personal survival. Inspired by Goethe's Faust, Academy is a pop chamber musical about boys learning to become men-and remaining true to themselves.

With Corey Boardman (Altar Boyz, Next to Normal) and Gabriel Violett (Spring Awakening)

Directed by John Carrafa (Tony nominee, Urinetown and Into the Woods)

All Fall Down

Book by Greg Turner; Music and Lyrics by Selda Sahin

Golden boy Ben Little is embarking on his next great adventure: college. Everything comes crashing down, however, when he inexplicably jumps from the window of his sixth story dorm room. Astonishingly surviving the fall, Ben returns home-where nobody will talk about what happened or ask questions that might tear apart their picture-perfect world.
