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.
