Rudger is fed up. He is tired of being treated like one of Amanda’s play toys. He feels much more than just “make believe.” In fact, he feels everything.

Amanda shows Rudger all the beauty that is her mind. However, her Imagination has a track record of getting her into trouble.

Zinzan drops Rudger off at the library, or as the residents call it “The Agency,” where all “forgotten” Imaginaries end up. Their leader, Emily, welcomes Rudger and brings him up to speed.

We open the show on the scene of an accident. Someone has been hit by a car. Someone else is being chased… running for their imaginary life.

We pick the story back up after the accident. In a split scene Zinzan is leading Rudger to safety while Amanda is rushed into the hospital with her mother, Lizzie, by her side.

Lizzie watches over Amanda as she lays lifeless in a coma. She reflects on her choices as a mother.

Rudger is Amanda’s best friend. He doesn’t exist, but nobody’s perfect.
— The Imaginary

The Imaginary : A New Musical, a story of love, loss, imagination and not really being there. After the loss of her father, Rudger appears to be Amanda’s only friend. He doesn’t exist, but nobody is perfect.

Amanda’s intelligence and creative imagination leaves her an outcast in a world that doesn’t seem to be on her side. Amanda finds out that only she can see her Imaginary Friend, or so we think, until the sinister Mr. Bunting arrives at Amanda’s school to investigate the situation. Mr. Bunting hunts Imaginaries. Rumors say that he eats them, and he’s sniffed out Rudger. Soon Rudger is alone and running for his Imaginary life. But can a boy who isn’t real survive without a friend to dream him up? Can a boy who is Invisible to the world find his purpose in life before he fades away? 

A thrilling new story with an exciting contemporary pop/rock score that will keep you at the edge of your seat and take you on a remarkable journey.
