About the Original:

Single Box Turn Productions is proud to present Band Geeks: A Half Time Musical the latest show by Becky Eldridge, Amy Petersen and Andy Eninger (the same friendly folks who brought you the FringeNYC-bound hit comedy musical, Little House on the Parody).

Are you, like, a geek? Or a nerd? A queerball drama fag? Well, whether you were a dweeb, burnout, dork, prep, slut, cheerleader, jock, choir hussy or art freak, this show is for every underdog who ever dreamt big.

It's 1989... and in the industrial town of Elyria, Ohio, football is king and the high school marching band is an after-thought. But this is the year & the band is going to march at the half-time show of the Cleveland Browns Monday Night Football Game and be featured on NATIONAL TV! The school band director, Doug Bradford (Ross Foti), is trying his damn hardest to motivate his marching band kids, especially the new drum major, Joey Cranford (Joseph Cranford). But, with funding for the arts drying up, Bud Edwards (Brian Vogler), the domineering school superintendent, is doing his best to cancel band forever!

Will the Elyria Pioneer Marching Band ever be appreciated? Will the band get the money it needs? Will the drum major catch his staff? Will anyone in the band get some action? What really happened at band camp?

This 80's flavored musical features original music, original marching and big, big bangs. It's a little bit naughty and a little bit sweet- the show for anyone who ever felt misunderstood in high school. And remember, Band Geeks got a lot more action than you did!
