Director Ashley Mills Becher and music director Shelley Walljasper are excited to be returning to the Circa '21 directors' chairs after last summer's adorable children's musical The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.


A Charming Star-Spangled Musical! One day in class, Grace Campbell discovered there has never been a female president. "Where are the girls?" she asked, as her third-grade teacher rolls out a poster with all of the U.S. presidents. Frustrated by the lack of female faces in the White House, Grace decides she wants to be president and inspires a school election. Through the throes of campaigning and pep rallies, service projects and posters, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find the fun and hilarity in the wonderful world of politics! Join us in Mrs. Barrington's classroom this election year!
