Summer, 1993; small town Nebraska. College-bound, football playing Mike has everything figured out. At least until he meets Will, a quiet boy from his graduating class. This indie-pop musical based on the album "Girlfriend" by Matthew Sweet captures the thrill of first love–and how we discover each other and ourselves through the mixtapes we make.

The appearance of Jonathan Melo is made possible with generous support from Elissa Cogan and Barry Chester.

Recommended for ages 14+.

Run time: 90 minutes, no intermission



A tenderly truehearted rock musical that seems primed for cult-hit status
