Saxe Middle School's seventh- and eighth-graders will present the musical version of the much-loved 1987 motion picture "Big," starring Tom Hanks, next Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the Saxe auditorium.

It's the story of Josh Baskin, a frustrated adolescent, who wishes he were "big" and wakes up the next morning as a 30-year-old man. He discovers there is much more to being an adult than he's bargained for and learns we must all grow up at our own pace in our own time.

Show times are Thursday and Friday, March 22 and 23, at 7 p.m. and a matinee performance Saturday, March 24, at 2 p.m. Tickets are on sale in the Saxe lobby, 468 Farm Road, Monday through Wednesday, March 19 to 21, from 2 to 3 p.m., and one hour before each performance.
