From the company that brought you Giraffenstein and The Pokémusical, comes Merely Players.

From audition sign-ups to the opening night curtain, we join the cast and creatives of the new musical “Bus Stop” as they work through script changes, divas, horrible acting choices, showmances and worst of all, identity crises. The success-hungry director, amateur performers and the never-quite-finished material find some much needed help from the most unexpected place: The Audience.

Enjoy a meta-exploration of the theatre scene as we watch as a struggling (and mostly terrible) theatre troupe, the Boyle Community Players, attempt to put on a musical that maybe really should never have been written in the first place.
