‘High Drama 2’ follows the theater company of Freedom High School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, as they put on their best show yet: The Wizard of Oz.
I actually really like this idea for a web series. It’s the perfect concept for something that can be condensed down into 5 minute episodes. The students are instantly likable and the obvious talent that the two girls have that are going for the role of Dorothy is pretty impressive. The series has an MTVish feel to it, which I think will be successful – I mean they’re not many MTV reality series that don’t become cult faves. And with the instant connection you feel to these students, you can’t help but want to see where this journey will take them – Who gets what role? How do the ones that don’t make it take it? What will rehearsals be like? And how will the final production turn out?
Episodes 1 – 5 are up online now, and episodes 6 – 10 will be posted next Tuesday. ‘High Drama 2’ is an original web series only available on TheWB.com.
