Showmance is an original musical that gives you a quirky backstage tour into the life of a theater kid. Charlotte and Henry are two teens who face different types of bullying and intimidation. Charlotte, a unique and talented song writer, is suddenly ousted from her long-time group of friends. Henry has been physically bullied by his peers for being different, yet both find a common bond in Betsy, a witty and energetic "theater geek" who, along with a cast of whimsical theater students, give Charlotte and Henry a place to belong.
