MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS Doc Re-Airs Today
Originally presented by Broadway proponent and former OWN host Rosie O'Donnell as part of the Documentary Club, the arresting and exciting 2010 high school glee club documentary MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS gets a special re-airing on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network today.
The official information and synopsis of the performing arts-centric MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS is as follows: "MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS is an award-winning documentary that follows three high school theater troupes on their journey to the Freddy Awards ceremony - the Tony Awards for high school musicals. The film demonstrates that arts education encourages the same teamwork, camaraderie and confidence as sports.
Across the USA, high school sports are regularly lavished with funding, publicity and scholarships, while theater departments struggle to put on the school musical hoping for some attention of their own. It's no different in the sports crazy Lehigh Valley, PA, except for the "Freddy Awards," a live television event that recognizes excellence in local high school musical theater. Illustrating that arts education encourages the same teamwork, camaraderie and confidence as sports, MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS follows three theater troupes on their creative journey to the elaborate award ceremony - the "Super Bowl" of high school musical theater."
