Be in the WORLD PREMIERE of a brand new musical!

Learn about the rewards and challenges of creating a character from the ground up, and working with a developing script and score.

Brief Plot Summary: The show is a series of vignettes, songs, monologues, and short stories, all centering around kids, teens and young adults as they encounter the many shared life experiences during the pandemic, and discover their “new normal.” Through these episodes, we follow these characters as they collectively look for and create moments of light with those around them.

This show will be a mix of poignant moments and comedic, lighthearted ones.

Originate a Role
• Each cast member will be responsible for a solo feature within the overarching themes, and each part will be tailored to every individual actor as they originate a new musical role!
