It’s the 1960s, and Billy McPherson, the new kid at parochial school, is getting a fine medieval education. When the beguiling young drama teacher, Sister Katherine, sweeps into his life, he falls head-over-heels in love, resolving to become pope and to change the rules of the Church so that they can one day marry. This charming, funny new musical about first love, obsession and the search for miracles.
