Buy your grades. Buy your future.
But what happens when the rest of the world finds out?

After the tremendous success of the original production of RANKED: A NEW MUSICAL at Theatre at Granite Bay, writer Kyle Holmes and composer David Taylor Gomes will mount a concert version of the show at the Crest Theatre on June 8th at 7pm. This one night only alumni concert will feature the original cast from Theatre at Granite Bay, and will be directed by local theatre professional Joelle Robertson. RANKED, which was featured locally and nationally in the press asks -- What are you worth? Who decides? And what do you do when it all comes crashing down?

High school has always been tough. But in the dystopian world of RANKED, brutal competition reaches new heights as publicized academic excellence comes to define each student's worth. In the face of an intense and perverse culture of performance, Lily must come to grips with her place in the status quo as she watches friends and enemies alike destroy themselves and each other to score their way to the top of academic leaderboards. When an impossible lie is discovered, the fate of these students' futures hangs in the balance.

Kyle Holmes has written a timely and fast paced script that moves with urgency while managing to capture the complexity and nuance of being a driven and vulnerable teenager. And David Taylor Gomes provides a rich and vibrant original score that captures the frenetic energy of high school with catchy pop/rock melodies that will be stuck in your head for days.
