The show is performed in one act, and is only 14 minutes in length. The characters of the students, cousins, and cops are played by several ensemble members. The order of characters is the order of the character's importance to the song.
Written by Pulitzer Prize winner and Hamilton creator, Lin Manuel Miranda, 21 Chump Street is a true story as reported in the series 'This American Life.' 21 Chump Street is a cautionary tale of a high school honors student who falls for a cute transfer girl. He goes to great lengths to oblige her request for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection - only to find out that his crush is actually an undercover cop planted in the school to find drug dealers. 21 Chump Street discusses the ramifications of peer pressure, conformity and drug use in our schools with a message that will stay with teenagers long after they leave the theatre.
