6:30 PM Wonderful Flight To The Mushroom Planet

Based on the book by Eleanor Cameron, a script by Jeffrey Beer, Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet was scheduled to premier live in March at Lehman College. COVID-19 changed all of that. Undeterred, Music Professor Penny Prince, who wrote the show’s music and lyrics, decided to make use of the tools available to them—Zoom and cellphone cameras—to record Lehman College’s first virtual musical.
