The Beverly Theatre Guild presents

Book by John Weidman—Music by David Shire – Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.

Director Josh Penzell, Musical Director George Machay, Choreographer Taryn Herman


Be a part of the audience as the 1987 hit movie bursts on stage in this vibrant, tuneful and touching musical.  Frustrated adolescent Josh wishes he was “big” and wakes up the next morning as a man to discover there is much more to being an adult than he first thought – learning that we all grow up at our own pace and time.
