Homeschool Musical: Class of 2020 will give high school students whose spring musicals were canceled due to the coronavirus shutdown a chance to sing and dance in front of an audience while in quarantine at home. It's inspired by the Tony-winning Benanti's #SunshineSongs online movement. According to Variety, the HBO Max special airing later this summer "will feature a diverse group of student actors playing seniors from the same high school. While the pandemic may have shut down their school, the drama and romantic intrigue live on." Benanti says of the special: “Our school shows are more than just entertainment. At the very least, they bring our communities together to revel in the talent of our young artists. At their best, they are a life changing experience that these kids will bring with them into the rest of their lives."
