The Musical, a rollicking 2006 song-and-dance mockumentary about the rise of the fictional Symphonic Sensations from small-town high school choir to (as the website puts it) “international pop phenomenon.” This weekend, American Conservatory Theater's Young Conservatory winds up its West Coast premiere of the show, featuring promising young talent from schools around the Bay Area. A great way to celebrate the end of the academic year with a theater-loving kid and friends (expect them to beg to be sent to theater camp this summer).
Performances: Friday June 8 (7:30 PM), Saturday June 9 (2:00 PM and 7:30 PM)
The Theater at Children's Creativity Museum (formerly Zeum Theater), 221 Fourth Street, S.F.
Tickets: $20.50 each
Book, music, and lyrics by Mark McDaniels and Donald Garverick
