The Big One-Oh!
Atlantic Theater Company kicks off its Atlantic For Kids 2019-2020 season with the world premiere musical The Big One-Oh!, featuring music by Doug Besterman, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and a book by Timothy Allen McDonald (based on the book by Dean Pitchford), and directed by MK Lawson.
Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties—that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning ten—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh . . . becomes the big OH-NO!?
