Peabody, A Musical Comedy for Intrepid Young Scientists at The Greenhouse Theater Center

May 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

$12 – $25

The Young People’s Theatre of Chicago is proud to present their original children’s musical, the S.T.E.M.-themed Peabody, A Musical Comedy for Intrepid Young Scientists, with book by Glen Berger, music by Morgan Taylor, and directed by Randy White. Peabody runs April 22 – May 22 at The Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. The performance schedule is Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 10 a.m., Sundays at 1 p.m. only, and additionally at 10 a.m. for Sundays in May. Tickets are $19 (under 12) and $25 (12 and up) and are available now at greenhousetheater.org, in person at the box office, or by calling 773.404.7336.

The world premiere TYA musical chronicles the scientific siftings of 11-year-old Alyssa Peabody, who is determined to work out why her new stepbrother is always in the family bathroom. Her attempt to answer the seemingly inane question: “How can a person pee so often?” sparks a series of adventures and mishaps and brings Alyssa into hilarious conflict with her wily science-fair nemesis Phillip, an oh-so-stressed-out school principal, and even the president of the United States, herself.
Featuring timely visits from history’s most eccentric and trailblazing scientists, what begins as a simple investigation into sodas and sports drinks turns into a comic, epic and ultimately heroic journey into the heart of the scientific process!
