A group of young teens who are entering middle school full of questions, doubts and fears, band together to form a club in an abandoned theater on Main Street. Inside the theater they discover an interesting piece of their town’s history, but also a seemingly homeless man named Charlie who connects with the kids through their mutual passion for musical theater. When the teens learn the theater is scheduled to be torn down they set out on a mission to save the town’s landmark and Charlie’s safe haven. They decide to put on an upbeat, modern day version of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Through mistaken identities and false assumptions the group learns you can’t always judge a book by its cover.
