Tuscaloosa Children's Theatre proudly presents our first fully online musical production!
This virtual musical was written exclusively for Zoom as a response to the coronavirus pandemic to allow young performers the chance to continue performing from a safe distance. It tells the hilarious story of a group of drama students desperate to keep their annual musical alive and their frazzled drama teacher who is helpless with technology but committed to helping her students realize their dream (Casting the teacher was a no-brainer for us!)
In creating the show, the writers considered what kids and drama teachers have been experiencing during the pandemic 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.
Approximate run time: 35 minutes
