Third Grade Reunion
Music, Lyrics, and Book by Brent Lomas
“Third Grade Reunion” is a new musical that looks at how little fibs can become much more than just harmless stories. The production centers on the adult lives of former third grade classmates who are unexpectedly reunited for a “reunion” that turns out to be a supplication for money to keep the school afloat. New relationships develop and the characters find that they are just as desperate for approval as they were when they were children. This musical underwent numerous readings at USC throughout the ‘07-’08 school year, and this workshop was the culmination of that process.
