Hello Out There

The first people to commit stock market fraud over the Internet weren't criminals. They were teenagers.

Inspired by real-life events, HELLO OUT THERE follows three unlikely friends in 1995 who spend their summer vacation buying and selling stocks using the newly-created World Wide Web.

Eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars later, the S.E.C. shows up and all hell breaks loose. This coming-of-age story asks the question, "If Wall Street hotshots can act like greedy children, why can't children act like Wall Street hotshots?"

Set during an era when the sounds of signing online involved a dial-tone, a phone ring, and a long static hiss, HELLO OUT THERE is a musical comedy that explores issues both timely and timeless: friendship, morals, microcap stock fraud, and growing up.
