They are on the verge of meltdown after their soloist makes the disastrous decision to save his own life. Will they be ready in time for the big recital? And isn’t music the most important thing? Glee Club is a comedy about singing. Singing makes people happy."
The production features the song "The World Will Make You Smile," penned by Stephen Speights. Designing Glee Club are Robert Monaco (set design), Wheeler Kincaid (lighting design) anda Jonna McElrath (costume design).
