Emma, a “clueless” senior at Highbury Prep, is certain she knows what’s best for her classmates’ love lives, and is determined to find the perfect boyfriend for shy sophomore Harriet by the end of the school year. But will Emma’s relentless matchmaking get in the way of finding her own happiness? Based on Jane Austen’s classic novel, this sparkling new musical features the hit songs of legendary singing groups and iconic singers like The Supremes, Katy Perry, Whitney Houston and Sara Bareilles. Some of the greatest pop hit are part of the EMMA score including: Chapel of Love, Roar, How Will I Know, Things I’ll Never Say, King of Anything, You Can’t Hurry Love, Girls Just Want To Have Fun, Heartbreaker, Stay, Brave and Unwritten. EMMA will feature one cast of student actors ages 13+ and will be presented in workshop style with full staging and minimal set and prop elements.
Broadway Workshop will present the pilot production of EMMA for Broadway Licensing/Playscripts inc.
Presentations of this exciting new version of EMMA will take place on October 29th at The Manhattan Movement and Arts Center Off Broadway theatre.
