What happens when a teenager gets everything he wants?

This is the question posed and answered in the first production by the 2020 season by the Rockale Regals Musical Society.

Be More Chill is the teen musical telling the story of Jeremy Heere, an average teenager and a bit of a loser until he discovers the SQUIP, a super computer inside a tiny pill he swallows with Mountain Dew that implants in his brain and promises him everything he desires: a date with Christine, an invitation to the 'raddest' party of the year, and a chance to survive high school.

But, as he upgrades in popularity and starts to get the girls, the SQUIP takes control of everything he says and does and deletes everything important to him, including his best friend Michael.

Be More Chill director, Kenney Ogilvie said the show speaks to a younger generation of theatre lovers.

"If there is a teen in your life, this is the perfect production to share with them," he said.

The strong local cast includes Katie Vials of Jannali, Hannah Barn of Bexley, Josephy Nalty of Miranda, Dani Caruso of Bexley North and Jamieson Raabe of Kareela, Darcy Noack of Heathcote and Daniel O'Connell of Bangor.

Be More Chill is showing at the St George Auditorium, 4-16 Montgomery Street, Kogarah, from March 11 to 14.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 concession, and $25 on March 12.
