Frankie Builds Androids is a 70-minute sci-fi musical comedy written specifically for middle-school and up, by the award-winning creative team at Beat by Beat Press.
Meet Frankie, a brilliant but socially awkward student who can’t seem to connect with her classmates. At the start of school, she finds herself abandoned by her best friend, Avery, and all alone. When a group project goes awry, Frankie devises an unconventional solution: she replaces all her classmates with android replicas, each programmed to correct their flaws. What follows is a hilarious and unexpected series of events that challenges our ideas of belonging and perfection. Featuring a breathtaking synth-pop score, this sci-fi musical comedy explores the ways we build narratives around one another and how a community where everyone is exactly the same is not a community at all.
