The dreaded high school tradition of standardized testing gets the musical treatment in this hilarious and touching story of eight compulsive teenagers. Over the course of one test, they manage to create and destroy friendships, learn to express their individuality, and sing and dance like maniacs. Progressing through the format of a test structure with a Multiple Choice portion consisting of solos, a fifteen minute break spoken in real time, and a Free Response section where songs build and overlap, the students expose their deepest concerns, aspirations, and sources of suburban teen angst.

Published Reviews

"...a fantastic ensemble show... Not only was the show especially well-received by our audiences, it was also a fantastic teaching tool in terms of stylistic hallmarks for our performers, not to mention the complex, intricate harmonies and rhythms presented by the score. Very unique and unexpected for audiences -- it was a big hit with ours, and I highly recommend it!"

Adam Roberts, Director, Austin Conservatory of Theater
