Be More Chill
Ages 14-18, all youth are cast
Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about "The Squip," a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk? Although Be More Chill is recommended for ages 12 and up, we are requesting that audience and cast members be ages 14 and up due to cursing, dark humor, and crude jokes. Below are a couple of websites with more information on the show and teenagers. Please know that at MTA we will make sure the musical is presented in a tasteful manner, will adhere to the PG-13 rating, and ensure the message of the show, which is to be yourself. This Sci-Fi Musical explores parts of high school that everyone goes through, like trying to fit in, wanting to impress someone you like, feeling like an outcast and even losing a good friend along the way, but it also shows deep messages on how technology is taking over our society.
