(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) -- Centenary Stage Company’s Young Audience Series returns this fall with Grace for President from October 7-10. Based on the book by Kelly S. DiPucchio, with book, music, and lyrics by Joan Cushing, Grace for President is the story of Grace Campbell who discovers one day in class that there has never been a female president.
Frustrated by the lack of female faces on a poster her third-grade teacher rolls out of all 44 US presidents; Grace decides she wants to be president and inspires a school election. Grace seems the likely winner until the most popular boy in school runs against her. Through the throes of campaigning and pep rallies, service projects and posters, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find the fun and hilarity in the wonderful world of politics!
Performances will be Thursday, October 7 at 7:30pm, Friday, October 8 at 8:00pm, Saturday, October 9 at 11:00am and 4:00pm, and Sunday, October 10 at 2:00pm.
