21 Chump Street: The Musical
Performance is 15 minutes with a 20 minute talk-back with the actors. Standing Room Only may be available at the door for certain performances when shows are sold out online. Lin-Manuel Miranda's 21 Chump Street is a 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series This American Life. 21 Chump Street is a cautionary tale of Justin, a high school honors student who falls for a cute transfer girl. Justin goes to great lengths to oblige Naomi's request for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection - only to find out that his crush is actually an undercover cop planted in the school to find drug dealers. 21 Chump Street questions the ethics of this form of law enforcement, and 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. Co-Directed by LaNita Antoinette Walters and Kyle Murphy.
