"It breaks our heart to hear that so many theatre performances have been postponed or cancelled. This means thousands of young actors out there won’t get a chance to take the stage for their final performance."
This musical was written in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as a way for actors to work together as an ensemble to put on a show – while staying safe in their own homes.
"The Beat by Beat Press writing team realized early on that the format of a traditional musical would not work remotely (group singing on Zoom is a disaster), so we built the show from the ground up. We considered what kids and drama teachers are going through at this time and worked those themes into each scene – including the antics and technical mayhem that comes with performing a musical online. The result is a comedic and fun storyline designed to lift spirits when we all need it the most.
We hope you enjoy this special musical we put together for you and can’t wait to see your shows go online!"
