Grace for President

Young Audience Series

September 26 - 29

Little Theatre : 400 Jefferson St.

Based on the book by Kelly S. DiPucchio
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Joan Cushing

One day in class, Grace Campbell discovered there has never been a female president. "Where are the girls?" she asked, as her third-grade teacher rolls out a poster of all 46 US presidents. Frustrated by the lack of female faces in the White House, Grace decides she wants to be president and inspires a school election. She seems the likely winner until the most popular boy runs against her. Through the throes of campaigning and pep rallies, service projects and posters, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find hilarity in the wonderful world of politics!
