Actual Middle Schoolers to Take the Stage in MIDDLESCHOOLANDIA at Hollywood Fringe

By: Apr. 18, 2017

Middleschoolandia is an irreverent musical comedy performed largely by actual middle schoolers.

These young people, filled with hormones and hope, are thrust into a frightening world of "education". As they learn to navigate the complexities and hypocrisies of middle school. Overwhelmed teachers, overpowering hormones, and a crippling weight in backpacks all contribute to the hilarious journey of Middleschoolandia.

A hilarious satire on the tragedy of our school system.

With songs such as "I'm Only Twelve" and "The Profanity song", Middleschoolandia is a musical that everyone can relate to, while pointing out the impossibility of making it through Middleschoolandia unscathed.

A diversity cast with a universal experience, all the songs and scenes in Middleschoolandia are created by experiences from actual middle schoolers, written by Carson Goring, age 12, and her mom, Victoria Goring, who was shortlisted for Juilliard last year. The young actors represent the social economic and cultural diversity of Los Angeles, representing the next generation of theater creators.
