Jean is a girl who believes she can invent something to change worries into wonderful ideas, so she enters it in the school science fair. In Washington DC, the POTUS hears about it and invites her to bring her machine to the world peace summit to help solve the world problems.

Thus begins the tale of Jean And The Wonderful Idea Machine. The world premiere is February 17 at Mister Theater, 1847 E. Burnside Street #101 by Portland Musical Theatre.

The story is about believing in dreams and making them come true. The book, music and lyrics are by Jenn August and it’s all directed by Deanna Maio.

The show runs through March 11 and tickets are $12 – $25 at the box office, 971.225.7469 and online. See
