Detour is a celebration of theater by actors with a vast array of disabilities.  It is their joy and commitment in bringing this story to the stage that makes this production truly special.

This irresistible new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress?
