22 Fun Stories About Musical Theater That Will Have You Dancing In The Aisles!

| Right | July 18, 2020

Dear readers,

Musical theater has delighted audiences for hundreds of years, touching hearts and covering every subject you could think of from America’s Founding Fathers to high school drama to alley cats to Spongebob Squarepants.

In recent times, performers, stage crew, techs, and all the people who bring musicals to life have been stuck twiddling their thumbs. For community theater performers, this means a loss of a creative outlet; for professionals, the loss of their livelihood.

Everyone knows that the theater attracts weirdness, whether you’re onstage, backstage, in the tech booth, or in the audience. Whether you’re busy singing the alto part of “One Normal Night” (The Addams Family musical) on repeat, watching Hamilton for the sixth time this week, or just rolling your eyes about those nerdy Theater Kids, we hope these 22 musical theater stories bring you a smile!
