The students of McPringle University thought it was a spring break like any other… until a rather unusual email from the school’s president informs them that the rest of the semester must take place over ZOOM! For Emilia Morley, quarantine could mean much more than Netflix binges and a Tinder relapse–– it’s a chance to participate in McPringle’s university-wide talent show and win every non-legacy-college-student’s most coveted dream: a tuition refund. There’s only one problem: Emilia has no talent. Well, she’s smart, but what’s that worth at a place like McPringle, right?
Follow Emilia and her friends (or are they?), Laika, Steve and Straight Steve, as they navigate quarantine and face an absurd conflict that will inevitably lead them to a profound realization, or something like that.
This short digital musical was produced by bored remote students, for bored remote students, remotely. Any similarities to real people, institutions or events is purely coincidental.
