Fly High!

Ben Perez -- a normal, Mexican 15-year-old boy, has lived with his parents on a farm all his life, but when a huge corporate company manages to buy their property, moving in with his cousins isn’t exactly easy. His cousin, Preston, isn’t the most exciting primo, and only wants to be popular, and unfortunately, Ben’s peers at school aren’t too fond of him either. But, one day, during school, when an unexpected chemical spills all over Ben, it changes his life forever. Ben is now known as Jet, the hero of his city, with only Preston knowing his true identity, promising each other to keep it a secret. However, when one of Ben’s peers, Jane, accidentally leaks his identity online, Preston is the opposite of pleased. As his jealousy over Ben conquers him, and his hunger for fame and likability grows, he decides to get powers of his own. How will this brawl end up? With broken friendships, jealous peers, and humor, the musical “Fly High!” presents an extraordinary story of how everyone should matter, and be cared about no matter what.
