The 1987 hit movie bursts onstage in this vibrant, funny and touching musical. Twelve-year-old Josh Baskin wishes he were "big" to a “Zoltar Speaks” machine and wakes up the next morning a 30-year-old man. With the aid of his best friend, Billy Kopecki, he tries to cope with adulthood while trying to find another Zoltar machine to wish himself a kid again. Along the way, he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for – and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time.
