The final session will include a performance that will be recorded, edited, and then sent to students to watch and share with family and friends.

VIRTUAL FALL CHILDREN’S THEATRE PRODUCTION:

Super Happy Awesome News! A Virtual Musical

Two siblings launch rival good news networks and find themselves competing for the title of happiest news show. Soon, their correspondents are in a whirlwind of ecstatic musical reporting – from joyful weather forecasts, to cheerful cooking segments and blissful political updates! But, when vulnerability starts peeking through the euphoric facade, they’re left wondering: is there room for raw honesty on a super happy broadcast?

In this new virtual musical, each actor will rehearse scenes, songs and choreography in live, virtual workshops. They will then individually video record and upload their performances. Performances will be compiled and broadcast to a public audience!
