Breakdown

This coming of age musical involves the 1950/60’s Catholic education of eight Chicago children, (played by adults), following them from the start of elementary school through the high school senior prom and beyond.

Along the way it touches on such topics as first confessions, puppy love, patron saints, teacher's pets, sex education classes, and the importance of wearing panties under the school uniform's plaid pleated skirt. The main focus is on late-blooming Eddie Ryan and chubby Becky Bakowski, who become best friends, fall in love, and then go their separate ways when Becky decides to join a convent.
