“For Genevra and Joshua Bradley, the question is no longer hypothetical. Their 3-year-old son, Mac, is next on the waiting list to enter Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy – and everyone knows that. once a child is accepted, their life will unfold with glorious ease. Josh and Gen have struggled their entire lives to get here, and now they’re one fateful dinner away from ultimate success as parents: good preschool. You may never look at preschool – or pesto – the same way.”

The student production team and crew include Alondra Castro, set designer; Liz Netherton, lighting designer; Gabriel Martin, assistant lighting designer/lighting operator; Kat Fields, assistant costume designer; Charlotte Branch, sound designer; Lizzy Bachran, accessories designer; Rachel Hill, Accessory Design Assistant; Gabrielle Turner, stage manager; Scott Cantrell and Reilly Czubinski, assistant stage managers; Darcy Saucedo, scenic painter; Katie Coldiron, Wardrobe Manager; and Stefani Garcia, master electrician.
