“21 Chump Street” by Lin-Manuel Miranda is a new 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series ‘This American Life’.

It is a cautionary tale of a high school honors student who falls for a cute transfer girl. He goes to great lengths to oblige her request for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection- only to find out his crush is actually an undercover cop planted in the school to find drug dealers.

It discusses the ramifications of peer pressure, conformity and drug use in our schools with a message that will stay with teenagers long after they leave the theater. Perfect for donor evenings, galas, special events and student/community outreach programs.
