Two talented casts of teenagers have been assembled from around the world, to star in Broadway Workshop's first ever full-scale virtual musical. The show has been rehearsing over Zoom and will star two young actresses - Angie Chavez (Cast A) and Sophie Pollono (Cast B) - in the title role.

On tackling the role of director, Louderman says "It has been an inspiring journey bringing Emma to life alongside my incredibly talented collaborators. These students are the cream of the crop and their professionalism shines through in their remarkable storytelling, despite everyone being in different locations."

She is certain she knows what's best for her classmates' love lives, and is determined to find the perfect boyfriend for shy sophomore Harriet by the end of the school year.
