Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) hosts an online premiere of the virtual musical, Super Happy Awesome News. The musical will feature 20 youth hailing from Winona, Minnesota City, and North Mankato, Minnesota, Alma, Fountain City, and La Crosse, Wisconsin and Rapid City, South Dakota. The virtual musical is about two siblings launch rival good news networks and find themselves competing for the title of happiest news show. Soon, their correspondents are in a whirlwind of ecstatic musical reporting – from joyful weather forecasts, to cheerful cooking segments and blissful political updates! But, when vulnerability starts peeking through the euphoric facade, they’re left wondering: is there room for raw honesty on a super happy broadcast? This new virtual musical (designed specifically to be rehearsed and performed remotely), incorporates real stories from kids and offers a positive outlet for them to express their emotions.
Join us for the premiere on Saturday August 29, 6 pm on Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts’ YouTube & Facebook Page.
