Break a Leg Theater Works to Present HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL JR.

Break a Leg Theater Works (www.breakalegtheater.com), one of the premier performing arts programs on the South Shore, announced today co-founders Kyle Wrentz and Healy Sammis have produced and directed two new COVID-safe virtual movie presentations "High School Musical Jr." and "The Drowsy Chaperone!"

(high school edition), "High School Musical Jr." will be available for streaming Friday, June 25, at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 26, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 27, at 3 p.m. (For trailer, tickets, and additional information, visit https://www.breakalegtheater.com/high-school-musical-jr.)

Break a Leg Theater Works' presentation of "High School Musical Jr." is a virtual musical production featuring 31 students, ages 10-15, from all across southeastern Massachusetts. The virtual experience also features original choreography from "Hamilton's" Thayne Jasperson (who was also a cast member of the original "High School Musical" film and the sequel).

Similarly, "The Drowsy Chaperone!" is a musical comedy about a man who plays his favorite Broadway cast album and somehow the characters come to life. The hilarious farce was filmed in a COVID-safe manner over the winter and spring, which provided students of all ages an opportunity to act and sing safely, as well as experience the craft of movie-making and learn how to vocally record in a studio. Filming included a hybrid of Zoom rehearsals and in-person filming days and rehearsals.

"We are so excited to bring two new virtual, streaming productions to our audiences," said Break a Leg co-founder and director Kyle Wrentz. "Not only have these experiences been a great way for our students to continue doing what they love in a safe setting, they have been able to learn so much about video production and recording. Our students have put their hearts and souls into these performances, and we're so excited to share them!"

"Our fantastic summer season has also been announced and we are going to be producing some outstanding productions, including 'The SpongeBob Musical,' 'Legally Blonde Jr.,' and the hilarious play 'Clue,'" added Healy Sammis, Break a Leg co-founder. "Families can head over to www.breakalegtheater.com to register for these opportunities and to learn more."

Tickets for both shows are currently on sale for $25 per ticket, and can be purchased at www.breakalegtheater.com.
