Six youngsters on the edge of puberty strive to become adults in this Tony Award winning musical comedy. The quirky outsiders use competition to define themselves apart from their crazy families, while their struggle to escape childhood is overseen by grown-ups who never escaped it themselves. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, they learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.
