A contemporary musical that follows the evolution and adventures of a group of friends as they journey through time–from the present to the past and back again. They share their stories about friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living, dying and middle school in an attempt to step directly into that elusive “present moment”: the Now. Here. This. Written by the same team that brought us the musical (title of show) – Now.Here.This. was performed off-Broadway in 2012.
This will be a virtual production – streamed online for viewing at home at designated times during the weekend of April 9-10-11, 2021. Details to follow.

Thank you to everyone who has been willing to be a part of this new PM production – we are excited to get things underway!
Piecing together a cast list was not easy – but we have tried to honor your requests, spread roles out, incorporate some light-hearted and serious scenes for balance – and so many other factors!
With that said, however, if we have you listed for a scene/character that you’re not excited about playing, PLEASE say something now. We will not be offended. Likewise, if we have not included a scene that you were really looking forward to doing, we might consider adding a few more, if we can.
This document is still a bit of a “work in progress” until we hear back from everyone. Please email Mrs. Mintzer with this information:
- I accept the role(s) I have been given.
- I do not wish to play the role(s) listed here (and then be specific)
We will contact individuals about scheduling rehearsal time for your scenes ASAP!
