Perfectly Theatrical, LLC is presenting the premiere of The Perfect Fit as part of the inaugural RAVE THEATER FESTIVAL. This family friendly musical features the book, music and lyrics written by twelve-year-old musical prodigy Joshua Turchin. This staged developmental production, directed by Broadway veteran Garth Kravits, follows Alexandra, a driven child actor with a powerful voice who grows concerned that she is growing too old to play a child and too young to play an adult. After being cast in a musical, she is sabotaged by a vindictive stage parent who would do anything for her daughter to succeed. Through the love and support of her mom, sister and friends, she learns how to move forward. The Perfect Fit shows how hard work can sometimes be met with twists and turns, ups and downs, and rewards in unexpected ways.

The performance schedule is as follows:

Sunday 8/11 @ 4pm
Monday 8/12 @ 6pm
Sunday 8/18 @ 1:30pm
Monday 8/19 @ 4pm
Friday 8/23 @ 7pm
Tickets are $25.00 for regular seats and $35.00 for premium seats, and can be purchased online.

Performances will be at Teatro Latea Theater, at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, located at 107 Suffolk Street, 2nd Floor in Manhattan.

The Perfect Fit‘s casting and full creative team will be announced at a later date.
