Hailed as “a work of explosive power,” Small Town Story explores how two families in a North Texas town deal with a community controversy over a high school production of Rent. Combining modern Broadway pop and country roots, the exhilarating songs will be performed by the acclaimed cast of American Theater Group’s recent World Premiere production at SOPAC. Experience all the feels and laughs of this timely yet timeless story about the power of theatre, the generational divide, and the potential of young people to change the world.
