Musical Theatre of Anthem’s upcoming production “Be More Chill” lands Dec. 8 to 11.
Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about The Squip, a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year, and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk?
Although “Be More Chill” is recommended for ages 12 and up, MTA is requesting that audience members be ages 14 and up due to cursing, dark humor, and crude jokes. MTA wants to ensure the musical is presented in a tasteful manner, and will adhere to the PG-13 rating, and hold to the message of the show, which is to be yourself.
This sci-fi musical explores parts of high school that everyone goes through, like trying to fit in, wanting to impress someone you like, feeling like an outcast, and even losing a good friend along the way, but it also shows deep messages on how technology is taking over our society. The talented cast, comprised of award-winners and nominees ages 14 to 18, is led by production staff including Director/Production Stage Manager Sierra Litman, Vocal Director Jackie Hammond, and Choreographer Lyndsie Clymer.
Performances take place at Musical Theatre of Anthem, 42201 N. 41st Dr., Suite B100. Tickets are $25. For more information, visit, musicaltheatreofanthem.org.
