SYNOPSIS: The Love Note ran Off-Broadway at the Actors Temple Theater in New York, NY in September of 2014.
 
The Love Note is the tale of Jessie's arrival at a new and outlandish school where there is a colorful and zany cast of characters. The ruthless bullies rule the cafeteria, the unique bookworms stick together behind their books, and the watchful Lunch Lady wields a mean soup ladle. Meanwhile there is a cute boy named Peter who looks Jessie's way during math class. Jessie sits alone in her new school cafeteria, but gains some comfort from the tiny pink love note that her mother packs into her lunch bag. As soon as the head bully Brittany steals her love note and bites into her tasty sandwich, Jessie knows she is in trouble. In the musical The Love Note, Jessie and her lively friend, Airy, invent a spicy strategy to overcome the lunchroom bullies who pilfer her lunch and laugh at her precious love note. Bolstered by her ever-growing hunger, and cheeky advice from Airy, Jessie decides to take "Hot Lunch" preparation into her own hands.

"The Love Note is whole-family entertainment that uplifts audiences while tackling real-life themes of teen bullying, independence and parenting. (Press Release, MSSA, Concord and Boston, MA)"
"This production has been a wonderful experience for this cast - the first I've had where the kids were in the actual age group of the characters they're portraying. It has been a great opportunity to work with kids artistically, but also to touch on topics and feelings they're actually living through right now in their lives. It didn't hurt that they are all having a great time with the material itself!"
By JulieAnn Govang - Director - Middlesex School Summer Arts (MSSA)
""The Love Note" explores the trials of being “the new kid,” learning the ropes of self-reliance and survival techniques that carry into adulthood."
By Broadway.com Staff - broadway.com
The Love Note ran Off Broadway in 2014 directed and choreographed by Russell Garrett. It has had several productions and it has been performed by 20 year olds playing 10 year olds, 16 year olds playing 10 year olds, and (of course) 10 year olds playing 10 year olds.

It is a musical set in a fantasy school where everything can be larger than life. It's about a time of life when we all see things as so large and so important. Friends, clothes, family, relationships, status – where every interaction is crucial to our survival of Middle School.

It is also a time of life when we might part with our imaginary friends to make room for new friends at school. When the Lunch Lady says that some of the kids are nine going on ten and some are ten going on 45, she is making a universal observation. Not all kids grow up the same or at the same time. Some kids are forced to give up their fantasy life because of real life problems and needs, and some kids are allowed to stretch their imaginary life out a bit longer. Either way, we all need help, advice, and love growing up, and if that comes from your imaginary friend so be it.

The Love Note has a large, flexible cast that is almost entirely kids. This makes it a great show for schools, camps, youth theatres and community theatres. The anti-bullying message also brings a needed opportunity for discussions and curriculum assignments about bullying.

What has struck me each and every time I see the show performed is how much fun the cast is having. I hope your production of The Love Note is memorable and PACKED WITH LOVE!
