With a book by 2023 Tony nominee Kevin Del Aguila (Some Like It Hot) and a score by Michael Mahler and Alan Schmuckler, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Musical premiered at Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2016. A revised version played the same company in 2022. The musical is available for licensing via Broadway Licensing.

The show follows the trials and tribulations of tween middle school student Greg Heffley, the titular "wimpy kid" forced to share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving.

The musical was created in collaboration with 20th Century Studios and by special arrangement with Kevin McCollum and Buena Vista Theatrical—the work also credits the book series' film adaptations as its source material.
