PRESS START is a musical for young actors that transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games. When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see a side of the heroes, villains, and sidekicks we’ve never seen before. But when things go terribly awry, will the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom find the hero inside of her to save the day? PRESS START is composed entirely in 8-bit synthesizers reminiscent of those incredible soundtracks from the original Nintendo and Sega consoles.
