According to press notes, "With just nine members and dwindling funds, the Cuyahoga High Marching Beavers are close to extinction. When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, Elliott, the tuba-playing band captain and Laura, his best friend, must find a way to unite the band, embrace their inner geek, and save the Marching Beavers."

Directed by Lorin Latarro, the concert featured music direction by Jacob Yates and was produced by Shoshana Feinstein.
