Introducing the latest show-stopping middle-grade adventure about life in and out of the spotlight from Broadway veterans and internet sensations, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Kate Wetherhead! JACK & LOUISA: Act 2 features two talented tweens whose friendship is destined to take center stage.
In JACK AND LOUISA: ACT 1, twelve-year-old Jack, a Broadway star with two shows under his belt, met Louisa, a self-proclaimed musical theater nerd ("MTN"), who could hardly believe her luck when Jack, a real Broadway actor(!), moves to town. When the local theatre announced auditions for her favorite show, Into the Woods, the two were faced with some difficult choices but soon became inseparable MTN friends.
Now, in JACK AND LOUISA: Act 2, Shaker Heights Middle School is putting on 'Guys and Dolls' and best friends Jack and Lou are hoping to get lead roles. But a mysterious new director soon arrives to town and threatens to meddle with their dreams. Is Shaker Heights big enough for two Broadway legends?
