His whole life, Nate Foster has wanted to star in a Broadway show. But how is Nate supposed to make his dreams come true when he’s stuck in Jankburg, Pennsylvania, where no one appreciates a good show tune? Nate plans a daring overnight escape to New York. There’s an open casting call for "E.T.: The Musical" and it could be the difference between small-town blues and big-time stardom.

Armed with a one-way ticket to New York City, small-town theater geek Nate is off to start rehearsals for E.T.: The Broadway Musical. But as thrilling as Broadway is, rehearsals are nothing like Nate expects. Now, as the countdown to opening night is starting to feel more like a time bomb, Nate is going to need more than his lucky rabbit’s foot if he ever wants to see his name in lights. He may even need a showbiz miracle.

When the news hits that E.T.: The Musical wasn’t nominated for a single Tony Award --- not one! --- the show closes, leaving Nate both out of luck and out of a job. And while Nate’s cast mates are eager to move on (the boy he understudies already landed a role on a TV show!), Nate knows it’s back to square one, also known as Jankburg, Pennsylvania. Where horror (read: high school) awaits. Desperate to turn his life from flop to fabulous, Nate takes on a huge freshman English project with his BFF, Libby: he’s going to make a musical out of GREAT EXPECTATIONS. (What could possibly go…right?)
