Quirky, Fluffy, Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

See it if If you dont care if a show has a plot or not. Actors try real hard to make this stinko good.

Don't see it if This is not a memorable show experience and nor a show you will remember. Really bad.

Excruciating, Banal

See it if You enjoy high school age kids try their best singing song after song.

Don't see it if You are looking for a professional production

Fluffy, Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if You don’t mind a real plot and a middle school production, then this is your school.

Don't see it if You prefer a musical with substance, then run from this musical. It was dreadful!

Simplistic and sweet-natured!, New theatre that speaks to our global climate adaptation crisis, A valiant effort!

See it if You want to know more about how high schoolers see climate change. The Greta Thunberg approach is simple, misguided but gets an A for effort

Don't see it if You think climate change is a hoax, believe there is such a thing as clean coal and these silly kids today are just spoiled & unappreciative Read more

Hooked to happiness after seeing this!, Inspirational message, Tuneful music & good musicianship, Resonant, Delightful

See it if U are open minded & open hearted to global warming & to young new talent. U like delightful original music, cute songs, & be entertainEd.

Don't see it if U expect a Hal Prince production. This is still green young cast & tiny budget project but sincere & has a great message we all need to hear Read more

Poor everything, Confusing, Slow, Banal, Disappointing

See it if There is some talent to see - some - and the musicians did well but I can’t recommend that you give it your time.

Don't see it if Don’t see it. Unless there is someone in the show you should support.

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Relevant, Quirky

See it if You want to see a badly plotted show, with actors who try to carry it, with their choreography and singing. Very cheeky and topical.

Don't see it if You want a show that draws you in and holds your attention for the story. Read more

Some good acting & singing, Disappointing

See it if a sweet, earnest but thin on content and easily forgettable show sounds like a good way to spend your time.

Don't see it if I would recommend passing on this one. Read more

"Although the show is 80 minutes without an intermission, it just breezes right by and one is never bored. … From ballads to disco tune, from rap to group numbers, the music is spot on. Sound designer Alex Santullo delivers a pitch-perfect musical."
