Billy's the new kid at Our Lady Of Perpetual Motion and he has a lot to learn about parochial school. When he meets his drama teacher Sister Katherine, a beguiling novice who jogs and sings like Julie Andrews, Billy falls hopelessly in love, resolving to become Pope and change the rules of the church so that they can one day marry. A charming musical comedy about first loves, youthful obsession, and the search for miracles.
Directed by Calloway Award winner Gabriel Barre ("The Wild Party," "Pippin") the cast of THE KID WHO WOULD BE POPE features Eric Anderson ("South Pacific"), James Judy ("The Scarlet Pimpernel"), Jillian Louis ("The Piper," "Soul Doctor"), and Tina Stafford ("I Married Wyatt Earp," "Richard III"), along with some of today's biggest little stars of the stage: Kyle Brenn ("West Side Story, "Go Diego Go"), Leah Greenhaus ("Shrek The Musical," "Meet Me in St. Louis"), Matthew Gumley ("The Addams Family," "Elf"), Alison Jaye Horowitz ("Mary Poppins," "Sunday in the Park with George"), Ben & Noah Radcliffe, Rachel Resheff ("The People in the Picture," "Billy Elliot"), and Sarah Safer ("Irving Berlin's White Christmas," "Whistle Down the Wind").
THE KID WHO WOULD BE POPE has book, music and lyrics by brothers Tom Megan and Jack Megan, music direction and arrangements by Jeffrey Lodin, set design by David Esler, costume design by Isabel Rubio, sound design by Shannon Slaton, with dramaturge Mike Cohen and choreography assistant Julio Hugo Penagos.
