Eighth grader Ella Jackson just can't win. At school, she's harassed by bullies. At home, her mother's on her case. All she wants to do is hang out and play video games. One day, when Ella says five magic words--"this game is my LIFE!"--her secret wish comes true, and she ends up inside the game! With just 45 minutes to clear three new levels, Ella must move quickly or be stuck in the game forever. She soon learns that virtual reality is no match for real life, while discovering some of her hidden talents along the way.
 
Middle school students in Washington, D.C., have helped create this world premiere hip-hop theater work using their growing understanding of hip-hop culture and personal connections to the art form. Their imaginative stories and characters now come to life on stage through talented adult performers and hip-hop artists, including special guest appearances by DJ Reborn, Rokafella & Kwikstep, and DC Youth Poets.

For age 8 and up.
