Emma (Maggie Harris), a senior at the private school Highbury Prep, is certain she knows what's best for her classmates' love lives, and she is determined to find the perfect boyfriend for shy sophomore Harriet (Sydny Havel) by the end of the school year. She is joined in her journey by a student-turned-substitute teacher (Dakota Cherney), pop star sensation Frankie Churchill (Shevin Solomon), the principal (Sierra Hatcher), an aspiring career politician (Yong Wang), his "amazing" girlfriend (McKenzie Johnson), a vending machine heiress (Holly Timmerman), and a townie dishwasher/busboy who works in the school kitchen (Dylan Fischer). There is also plenty of ensemble help from the Highbury student body, led by the Welcoming Committee (Mikaela Andersen, Grace Souerdyke, Maddison Williams, and Bridget Linton).

You'll hear lots of favorites, including "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," "Heartbreaker," "Roar," "Brave," "Be My Baby," "Chapel of Love," and many more! (If anyone wants to get 30 AR points and learn more of what it's about, read Emma by Jane Austen, published in 1815!)
