The story of Paul Green will capture you. This native son of North Carolina went to Broadway and back with a dream. That someday he could write a new ending for the Old South. Can a play create justice? Can an actor perform change?

BOOKED begins when two high school theatre geeks and best friends, Kenny Harris and Owen Mitchell, are snubbed for the leads in their senior musical. To retaliate against their invalidating classmates and teacher, they audition for the world’s top BFA Musical Theatre programs to prove to everyone they have what it takes. BOOKED is a modern coming-of-age comedy that explores the complex dynamics of childhood friendships, suburban familial tribulations, the triviality of high school theatre, and the farcical yet completely real and highly competitive process that is auditioning for drama school.
