In The Office! A Musical Parody, it’s a typical morning at Scranton’s third largest paper company until, for no logical reason, a documentary crew begins filming the lives of the employees of Dunder Mifflin. There’s singing, dancing, and paper! A hit in New York City, this unauthorized parody of the popular TV show features beloved Dunder Mifflin co-workers as well as songs including “Welcome to Scranton (The Electric City),” “The Dundies,” and “Mary Me Beesly.”
Produced by Right Angle Entertainment, The Office! A Musical Parody was written by Bob and Tobly McSmith and composed by Assaf Gleizner. Writers Bob and Tobly McSmith met while applying for jobs at a Dippin’ Dots in the mall. Although they did not get the jobs, they went on to create FRIENDS! The Musical Parody, Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical, Full! House! The Musical, Katdashians! The Musical, Showgirls! The Musical, and JonBenet! Murder Mystery Theater.
A free CyberCafé Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert featuring Ace Jones will precede The Office! A Musical Parody from 6 to 7 p.m. in Heritage Center. Ace Jones is a singer-songwriter from Marion, Iowa, who performs an eclectic mix of original covers that include folk, pop, country, and punk rock.
