Tall Enough

by Gloria Bond Clunie
directed by Chris Anthony

​Every spring, the J.E. Wilkins Science Pack at Hawkins Middle School celebrates the year with a trip to Wild Winds Amusement Park on their annual Physics Day. One problem - their normally fearless leader, Asia, is secretly terrified of roller coasters! For her team to win this year's Wild Ride Physics Challenge, she must ride at least one. A powerful group of friends unite and resort to extraordinary measures in hopes of helping Asia overcome her fears and discover if they all have what it takes to win.

​This production contains the use of strobe lighting effects.​
