New scripted live-action musical dramedy for tweens and families.
Hop To It Productions is looking for singers/actors to join the Northern Nightingales Choir and fill roles in our new scripted live-action musical dramedy in development.
When a talented 13-year-old girl immigrates to Canada from the Philippines to join her Mom after 5 years apart, she must overcome major culture shock and try to forge a successful life in a strange (and cold) new home. Can she reconnect with family, make friends and find her true voice when she joins the Northern Nightingales Competitive Choir? Or will her ambition and her tuyo get in the way?
