OWN Broadcast Premiere of MVP
An OWN Documentary Club selection, “Most Valuable Players” focuses on the Freddy Awards, a live television event honoring outstanding high school musical theater in New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.
Demonstrating that arts education encourages the same teamwork, camaraderie and confidence as sports, the film follows three theater troupes on their creative journey to the elaborate award ceremony - the Tony Awards for high school musicals. The film was the winner of the 2011 Nashville Film Festival Documentary Channel Audience Award.
A Canyonback Films production, the documentary is directed and produced by Matthew D. Kallis and written and produced by Christopher Lockhart.
