    We're proud to present an anti-smoking musical play that takes a Bad Wolfian approach (you know---fun songs, silly dialogue, bad jokes) to a serious topic. The show is designed to raise questions for discussion that can help lead students to make wise choices. Dude, Where's My Lungs? uses information from a variety of research and advocacy groups, including the American Cancer Society and the University of California, Irvine, Transdisciplinary Tobacco Use Research Center.
