This semi-autobiographical musical follows an aspiring composer questioning his life choices on the eve of this thirtieth birthday.

Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles. "Tick Tick Boom" is directed by Michael Mele of Milford with musical direction by Benjamin McCormack of Trumbull. The production stars Nic Calabro of Eastchester, NY as Jon, Arielle Boutin of Norwalk as Susan, and Kevin Thompson from Stamford as Michael. For more information, call the box office at 203-332-3228.
