Long-time friends and artistic collaborators at Spot-On Entertainment, Creatives Going Digital, and The Network have partnered with Broadway On Demand to create a dynamic and original multi theatre production project called Spot-On Entertainment presents Roar! The Musical - a digital live stream production that highlights the talented youth performers from high schools across America who are longing to have their voices heard and let their talents shine.

The pandemic pause has affected artists and theaters all over the world. High school musicals, an annual rite of passage each spring, have been canceled for the last two years. ROAR! The Musical gives theaters a chance to step in and fill this void. This project gives local theatre the chance to offer a musical experience to all the high school performers in their area and build community within their communities. Participating theatres will invite local high school performers to become part of their theatre's community of artists while also becoming part of the diverse national theatre community created through this unprecedented national production taking place on Broadway On Demand over two weeks in June.

The concept of ROAR! The Musical is both timely and historic.

Imagine this: The world gripped by a global pandemic. Everyone wearing masks for over a year. Daily life at a standstill. This happened -- one hundred years ago. When it was finally over the world celebrated for a decade.

The youth of the last century's pandemic forged a new way of writing and composing music: new sounds, new styles, new dances. Today's youth have found their way through the current pandemic via mastery of online performance skills which will forever change the way content is presented and performed. ROAR! The Musical brings the two generations together. The talented youth of today will celebrate the wealth of musical invention that arose from the last pandemic. Each theatre's production of ROAR! The Musical will be filmed in a theatrical space and will feature classic songs, specifically chosen by the venue to highlight the particular talents assembled from their community, performed in new, contemporary takes that honor the songs that gave birth to the Great American Songbook while bringing them into the present day.

Spot-On Entertainment's Scott Coulter is excited about the opportunities this experience will provide to the theaters and performers who take part. "The idea of using the young artists of today to honor the artists active during the last pandemic is really a once in a century opportunity. It's a gift to be able to use this moment in time to reflect on what happened a hundred years ago. We seem to have forgotten that we aren't the first people to go through a global pandemic - and the arts flourished after the last one. The material from that time is vast, rich, and diverse - as is the history of the period. The 1920s were a decade that included the first live radio broadcast, the birth of mass popular culture, the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, and the Great Migration. Music was changing. The arts were changing. The world was changing. And here we are again - on the precipice of global change and celebration. What a time to be alive. I can't wait to see how our young artists rise to the challenge of this moment."

Each venue's unique concert will be hosted by a Broadway star who will introduce the production and provide historical context throughout. The new arrangements for the concerts will be created by celebrated musical arrangers around the country. In June all participating theatre will have their unique productions of ROAR! The Musical shared on Broadway On Demand in a national celebration of theatre and the resilience of the human spirit. As a bonus, every young artist performing in a production of ROAR! The Musical will be offered the chance to view all the other venue productions for free in an effort to create a national community of young artists celebrating this historic moment.
