Hailed as “a work of explosive power,” Small Town Story is about two families in North Texas who struggle with a community battle ignited by a controversial high school musical. As the escalation divides father and son, mother and daughter, leaders and neighbors, all sides must find a way to harmonize before their way of life rips apart.

 

Commissioned and developed by New York Theatre Barn, Small Town Story has also been developed in Village Theatre’s Festival of New Musicals in Issaquah, Washington, followed by a developmental production at The Hartt School, and a 2018 world premiere produced by American Theater Group (James Vagias, Producing Artistic Director).
