March 28 - April 13

at the Todd Wehr Theater Directions

Crash Coogan seems to have it all – good grades, athleticism, popular friends. But what he can’t seem to get is the attention of his preoccupied father and the new girl in town, Jane. Despite being the target of Crash’s bullying, Penn Webb, his unconventional neighbor, enjoys a happy life with a pet turtle, strong family support, and even Jane’s friendship. Things suddenly change for Crash when his grandfather suffers a stroke, and he realizes finishing first isn’t the most important thing.
