Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Musical is a musical adaptation of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, performed by the Children's Theatre Company. It began in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on April 12th 2016 and ended performances there on June 12th 2016. It is unknown whether or not the musical was ever performed anywhere else and rumors that it was going to appear on Broadway amounted to nothing. Despite being hyped in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid community, very little was known about the musical for a long time, with neither a screenplay nor a full list of songs having surfaced until 2020.

In March 2020, it was announced that the musical would finally be put on once again by the Children's Theatre Company from April 27th, 2021 to June 20th, 2021 and in March 2022, it was announced that it would be put on again from April 22 to June 18, 2022.

On December 15th, 2023, a studio cast recording was released[1], though with a few missing songs.

The Musical became available for licensing in January of 2024[2], and it is set to return from April 6th - May 5th 2024[3].

Official description[]

2020[]

"Greg Heffley is in survival mode. All. The. Time. From bullies to his big brother to his height-challenged stature, he's the wimpy kid we can all relate to. The beloved series hits the stage in a brand-new musical with Rowley, Manny, and of course, Rodrick joining in the mayhem. A ridiculous amount of fun for anyone who has survived, is surviving, or hopes to survive middle school, inspired by the award-winning and bestselling book series."

2021-2022[]

"Middle school, ugh. It's the worst. But Greg is determined NOT to be at the bottom of the popularity chart. He'll leave that to his weird neighbor, Fregley. Or maybe Greg's best friend, Rowley Jefferson. But it's not going to be Greg…no way. See Jeff Kinney's popular character take center stage as Greg's cartoon diary becomes a raucous musical. Will Greg's plans lead him to sacrifice his one true friend? Can anyone avoid the dreaded Cheese Touch? Grab a hall pass and don't be late for an adventure familiar to anyone who actually survived middle school."
