Backstage Story

Oskarshamn, Sweden in cooperation with Oscarsgymnasiet and Oskarshamns Teatersallskap (teens)


Through a scheduling error, an American performing troupe is double booked into a popular Swedish theatre. The conflict begins from the moment they barge in on a dress rehearsal for the Swedish troupe’s gala opening performance. The American director and a Swedish actress fall in love and encourage a deeper understanding of the situation. Written in both English and Swedish, the plot follows character relationships that develop as differences are explored and sometimes resolved. The melodies are timeless, the lyrics (mostly in English) are witty, and the themes are universal.
