The musical tells the story of Josh Baskin, a twelve year old boy who hates being little, until one night at the carnival the mysterious Zoltar machine grants his wish to be big. Trapped in an adult's body and alone in New York, he innocently tries to find his way around a grown-up world where it's all work and no play. But while everyone around him tries to act their age, Josh just can't help being himself. Maybe he can teach the real adults a thing or two...
