When word gets out that there will be no Concordia Holiday Community Musical due to the COVID pandemic, current and past performers flock back to campus to reminisce about past shows. Through performing their favorite musical numbers, they try to determine the “best” holiday musical, and their quest leads them to the “greatest story ever told.” Whether on stage or on the screen, the show must go on!

This one-act, musical education comedy centers around Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry. He has writer’s block. He has been commissioned to write a very important piece for an important occasion but cannot come up with a single note! He comes to the Conservatory and finds inspiration from art and then can write his music.
