Weird!

A NEW MUSICAL ABOUT NEVER LETTING ANYONE TAKE AWAY YOUR POLKA DOTS!

Luisa changes everything about herself – including her colorful polka dot boots – to avoid being called weird. Will this work? What else could she possibly do?

Sam picks on kids at school sometimes, but she’s not really being mean…or is she? Caring people want to help Sam change. Will she let them? 

When Jayla witnesses her friend being bullied, she is too scared to stand up for her. Then, someone dares her to take part in the bullying. Will she find the courage to do what’s right?

See your favorite Weird! Series characters come to life on stage in this new original musical. 

WEIRD! The Musical, based on the Weird! book series by Erin Frankel and Paula Heaphy, is an energetic family musical with a powerful message. One story of bullying told from three different female character’s perspectives…one who is being bullied (Weird!), a bystander (Dare!), and the one using bullying behavior (Tough!). Created to perform for young audiences, families and kids will enjoy seeing the pages of the books come to life on stage with Luisa, Sam, Jayla and their friends learning where their power comes from and how to use it .

Audiences will love WEIRD! The Musical, with soaring music, fun choreography, bright colorful costumes and sets and scenes that will speak to issues students face every day.
