Full-length TYA Musical

Book by Laura Stratford

The almost-all girl high school math team from Waukesha, Wisconsin has lost--and then won--the regional math competition, and are off to compete in the National Mathlete Sum-it. These smart and funny whiz kids must unite to solve difficult math problems without getting distracted by teen drama and pressures.
Always witty, sometimes uproarious, this is the story of girls becoming women-- conquering anxiety and rivalry, finding a way to affirm themselves as individuals and as team members, and learning to win at math...and at life!

Casting: 5f/1m, with large cast edition adding up to 25 additional roles


Select Praise

“The book, by Laura Stratford, is heartwarming and funny...Get ready, Disney, because [this] is likely to be your next hit"

Times Square Chronicles

“A likeable, sweet, quite entertaining musical...A pretty big club is the sub-genre of musicals that have used school days and their clubs and cliques to click with an audience, but this one does it especially well and in an endearing way.”
