Set at Roseland High, Teenage Dick tells the story of a 16-year-old outsider in the deepest winter of his discontent: his junior year. Picked on because of his cerebral palsy (as well as his sometimes-creepy Shakespearean way of speaking), Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class.

Talkbacks with the cast and creative team are scheduled for June 23 (matinee), June 26, and July 1 (matinee).
