The musical tells the story of Evan Goldman, who is about to turn 13 and can’t wait for his bar mitzvah. Everything in his life is moving along as planned until he discovers that his parents are getting divorced and he’s ripped away from his home in New York City and thrust into rural Appleton, Ind. As he faces a new set of challenges, Evan is forced to navigate the social order at his new school. Through a series of trials, he learns what it means to be a friend and discovers that there’s more to life than establishing his place in the social pecking order.
