Virtual Theatre For the Whole Family

Is your family looking for something to stream while staying safe at home?? We have some virtual theatre for you made by New Orleans artists!


CLEAN SQUAD: An Antiseptic Adventure

Last summer, Prescription Joy produced their first original play, CLEAN SQUAD, performing at hospitals and schools across New Orleans, with a limited amount of public performances. If you happen to miss this delightful show, don't you worry! This week Prescription Joy released the virtual puppet show version, voiced by the original cast. Gather your whole family to watch the intrepid team of cleaning supplies: the savvy Spray Bottle (Zondra Howard), a grouchy but wizened Uncle Sponge (Philip Yiannopoulos) and the mighty Detergent (Leland Ensminger), as they battle against the Evil Germ: Malcontentous Nastyopolous (Helen Jaksch)! Will our heroes be able to stop the spread of the malevolent microbe? Will we ever be able to shake hands, bump fists, or High-Five again without risking doom and ‘germification’? Sing along, shout out loud and help the heroes save the day!

Zooming with Sondheim

After the cancellation of the March production of Urinetown due to Covid 19, the members of the TMTW returned to their homes to work remotely on their next project - a tribute to the master of the American musical, Stephen Sondheim, in celebration of his 90th birthday. The ensemble members have taken some of Sondheim's most memorable and iconic songs and placed them in the world of the "new normal" - social distancing, isolation, vlogging, and a return to child's play. All songs are self-recorded in self-created "studios" for your viewing pleasure. Zooming with Sondheim
