About The Show



Plot Summary

Buy your grades. Buy your future.
But what happens when the rest of the world finds out?
Theatre at Granite Bay proudly presents Ranked, a new musical for a bizarre era in education.

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.

This fast paced script, written by Kyle Holmes, 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.

Ranked asks audiences of all ages -- What are you worth? Who decides? And what do you do when it all comes crashing down?
