Synopsis


The Blank Theatre (Los Angeles, CA; photo by Anne McGrath).

When Reggie Watson is accepted into The Exceptional Childhood Center, a highly competitive preschool, he believes he’s set for life—since everyone knows that getting into the right preschool is the gateway to a successful future. But not so fast…Reggie must make it through the one-day trial period first. Desperate to prove he’s a fit, he tries too hard, and of course, disaster strikes. As his future flashes before his eyes. Reggie and his band of quirky classmates deal with the consequences of his mistake, discovering things about themselves and learning a lesson more valuable than the school could ever teach them.
