This is the story of 13 year old Joey Margolis, neighborhood punching bag, growing up fatherless in Brooklyn in the early 1940s. A boy looking for a hero, Joey decides to latch on to Charlie Banks, the all-star third basemen for the New York Giants. But Joey's chosen champion doesn't exactly welcome the extreme attention of a persistent young fan with an overactive imagination. Then again, this strange, needy kid might be exactly what Banks needs.

SEEKING BOYS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 10 AND 13 – FOR THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
CHUCKY MARGOLIS: 12 yrs. old—A shrewd kid who aspires to be a Jedi knight. He may be only 12, but he knows his father better than his father does. Vocal range- belt/mix A below middle C to high d flat; VOICE AS YET UNCHANGED!
CRAIG NAKAMURA: 12 yrs. old and Joey’s best friend, Craig’s Japanese American heritage makes him more of a visible target than Joey is, but he doesn’t let it get in his way—mostly because he thinks he’s the Green Hornet. Fiercely loyal and the only one in Joey’s life who can rein him in, his unshakable faith in Joey makes Craig the prototypical best buddy. Vocal range- belt/mix A below middle C to a high D flat – VOICE AS YET UNCHANGED!; PRINCIPAL
GORDON BIERMAN: must play 12 YRS. OLD. Your typical neighborhood punk. Dark-haired and German, he’s ruthless with kids who are weaker than he is—unless a world-famous baseball player happens to talk him out of that particular endeavor. But once he’s on the right track, he’s not entirely incapable of turning into one of the good guys. Vocal range- A below middle C to high D – VOICE AS YET UNCHANGED!
