From every moment of life there are lessons that can be learned from ourselves and those around us. ‘As We Are’ is a jukebox musical inspired by these lessons. This musical touches upon the power of friendships, self-love, spiritual connection, loss, and mental health topics such as body image, and addiction. ‘As We Are’ takes place in a modern setting accessed through the digital world during COVID-19. The purpose of this creative thesis was to produce a musical that could connect the lives of students during the distance forced by the COVID-19 pandemic. This thesis discusses the trials and tribulations of creating, directing and producing a jukebox musical during the COVID-19 pandemic.
