Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties – that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning ten — the big one-oh — he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme.
Of course, things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh . . . becomes the big OH-NO!?
Based on the beloved book, The Big One-Oh! Jr. features lyrics by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford (author of the novel Footloose), music by the acclaimed Tony-nominated Doug Besterman (Elf, Young Frankenstein), and a book by iTheatric’s award-winning playwright Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, James and the Giant Peach).
This CMT Junior Talents production features a cast of talented performers, ages 7-10.
