His best friend and campaign manager, Lane Brainard, with an emphasis on "Brain," is organizing a political campaign that will change the world as we know it! Raising money at a lemonade stand in front of Judson's house, the unlikely candidate gets some media attention that ignites the political voices of children around the nation. But running the country isn't like playing Nintendo; it requires immeasurable responsibility and courage. "Can you imagine a world where YOU were in charge?" But how could the leadership of a 12-year-old kid really handle the decisions of the commander in chief? In the end, it is the voice of a kid that decides the outcome of this exciting musical. Minimal set. Approximate running time: 75 minutes.
