Based on interviews with real students, this inventive musical delves into the shifting perspectives middle schoolers have regarding their families, school, growing pains, and what it really feels like to be caught in that strange age between childhood and adulthood. Designed for actors in middle school to perform with their own rock band, Life in the Middle offers young and old audiences alike an inspiring glimpse into the lives of some extraordinary kids and reminds those in middle school today that they are not alone.
