GIRLHOOD is an original musical developed specifically for performance in middle schools.
Featuring a large, mostly female cast, the show follows the lives of several girls from the beginning of middle school to the end of high school. Based on interviews with real girls, the show documents the journeys, struggles and joys young women face as they maneuver their way through school and life.
The show premiered in Summer 2019 at Bravo Performing Arts, Oak Park, Illinois.
Designed as a Song Cycle with minimal dialogue, the music and lyrics were developed by a diverse and exciting group of composers based on stories and characters created by producer, Larry Little.
