A Heartwarming, Coming-of-Age Story Comes to the Alliance Theatre Stage

Since 1968, the Alliance Theatre has been the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on-stage and off. This weekend, on Saturday, September 21st, we invite you to see Becoming Nancy with friends and family!

It’s 1979 in the south London suburb of East Dulwich, and David Starr is unquestionably one of the smartest, most talented kids in the 12th grade – he’s got a wild imagination, a vocal range to die for, and a bedroom plastered with posters of his beloved pop idols: Blondie, Sting, and Kate Bush. But smarts, talent, and great taste in music may not be enough to get him through secondary school, where, to his great surprise, he’s just been given the female lead in the school play.

The unconventional casting sends shockwaves through David’s small town, first with David, and then with his parents, his aunt, and his classmates. Before long, it seems like everybody has an opinion on whether David should go on with the show, inspiring him to turn to his no-nonsense best friend, Frances and his unlikely co-star, Maxie, the enigmatic captain of the football team.

Becoming Nancy is the huge-hearted new musical that weaves a story of family bonds, first loves, and the courage it takes to find your own spotlight. Purchase your tickets now at www.alliancetheatre.org.
