Winner! Outstanding New Musical Award - National Youth Theater
Luann and her school mates are stoked - it's the last day of school! Summer vacation's here! But will the high expectations soar or crash? Luann's big dream is to hook up with Aaron Hill. But she'll have to compete with hot cheerleader, Tiffany. Luann's doofus brother Brad desperately wants to impress beautiful Toni. But he keeps acting like a moron. A series of hilarious scenes and songs explore the joys and agonies of teenhood, from "Why Do We Need To Know About Michelangelo?" to "Ode To The Mall" to "Do You Hate Me Cuz I'm Beautiful?"

Luann - Scenes In A Teen's Life is a new musical based on the popular comic strip. It's an upbeat, high energy show full of funny situations and songs that teens relate to. Nearly 80% of the scenes use the entire ensemble so everyone gets into the fun. With female leads, an expandable cast and easy production, it's ideal for school and community theaters.

Our teens did this show as our annual theatre camp piece and LOVED it! The music is upbeat and fun, the script is witty and our actors enjoyed preparing and performing the show. Audiences were literally laughing until they cried.
If a sequel comes along, we'd be delighted to do another of Greg Evans' wonderful shows!

In considering all of the criteria necessary to select a show, "Luann - Scenes in a Teen's Life" fulfills many of them.  It is a quality show that is appropriate for family audiences, it is inexpensive and easy to costume, the sets can be simple and also inexpensive.  The show gives youth of all descriptions an opportunity to "shine".  The performers had a lot of fun doing the show.  The size of the cast is flexible.  It is heartwarming and enjoyable for audiences of all ages to watch.  The music is easy to learn and can give a quality sound when sung properly.  I would definitely recommend "Luann - Scene's in a Teen's Life".
