Book by John Weidman | Music by David Shire | Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr
When you’re young, you can’t wait to be grown-up… But being big and tall does not make you a grown-up. 13-year-old Josh Baskin knows one thing: being a kid is no fun! So when a rusty arcade machine magically transforms him into a 30-year-old man, Josh knows this is his chance to have the time of his life! Still a kid at heart, Josh navigates a grown-up world and reminds his new colleagues and himself of the joys of childhood in this fun-filled musical based on the beloved 1980s film. Everyone grows old, but you don’t have to grow up!
