A shot at college, internet fame, attention from the one they like. The stakes are high at Plain Springs High's first ever Dance-a-thon. As the demonic DJ transports them to dance crazes throughout history, each contestant must face their deepest desires and greatest weaknesses. Only one couple will walk out with "The Prize." The rest won't make it out alive.

Don't Stop Me features Music by Dave Malloy, Lyrics by Malloy and Krista Knight, and Book by Knight. The workshop will be Directed by Chloe Treat and Choreographed by Treat and Mayte Natalio with Music Direction by Dan Garmon. The production will also feature Lighting Design by Bailey Costa, Scenic Design by Meredith Ries, Sound Design by Scott Stauffer, and Costume Design by Fan Zhang with Stage Manager Olivia Mancini, Assistant Stage Manager Tyler Danhaus, and Props Coordinator Mary Grace. The presentation will be performed by students from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music.
