Skylight Music Theater

I had the great pleasure of writing a number for Skylight Music Theatre’s KIDSWRITES program this year! It’s a fantastic program which pairs student writers from 3rd to 8th grade with professional composers writing songs based around a theme. This year’s theme is a time capsule of 2020, that annus horribilis, and the topics range from the BLM movement to the conundrum of eating while wearing face masks.
The song I worked on was a duet and it’s about COVID, face masks, and eating outside. The texts were funny, melodramatic, and heartfelt in a way that only kids can be. Check it out when it premieres on May 3rd!
