BWW Feature: ĬMÁGEN 2021 - PARTICLE is a New Musical at Wharton Center's Pasant Theatre!

ĭmáGen is a collaboration between Wharton Center Institute for Arts & Creativity and MSU College of Arts and Letters. In its eighth year, this unique program calls for new musical theatre works, selects one show for that year's program, and then produces a staged concert in three short weeks. This year, the musical chosen PARTICLE.

PARTICLE is a coming-of-age story that follows Cora, a 16-year-old who gets recruited onto a professional eSports team. She's always been her twin brother's gaming sidekick; he taught her everything he knows. Now, as the youngest member of a world-class team, she feels in over her head. When her brother gets sick, she wants to quit and go home, but he convinces her to stay -- and make her way to the championship.
