When the star of the high school theater department doesn’t show up for the biggest Shakespeare competition of the year, Mia sees her opportunity to step into the spotlight, even if that means stepping on the toes of her classmates. Will Mia’s ambition get in the way of her friendships and her acting? This original musical about finding your authentic voice will have you dancing in your seat and humming tunes all the way home.
