MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS
Across the USA, high school sports are regularly lavished with funding, publicity and scholarships, while theater departments, hoping for some attention of their own, struggle to put on a school musical. It’s no different in sports-crazy Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, except for the “Freddy Awards,” a live television event that recognizes excellence in local high school musical theater. Illustrating that arts education encourages the same teamwork, camaraderie and confidence as sports, MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS follows three theater troupes on their creative journey to the elaborate award ceremony — the “Super Bowl” of high school musical theater.
