The Main Street Kids Club (aka M.S.K.C) is a cool kids’ club that follows the motto, “Math skills = Life skills!” they use numbers to figure out the various things life throws their way. Toby, the “new kid in town,” desperately wants to join. When he finds a 50-year-old treasure map, he sees a chance to prove himself. With six interwoven stories, each focusing on a different mathematical concept, this musical promises to be educational and entertaining for all ages!
