Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical


In August, TikTok user Emily Jacobsen posted a video of an ode to Remy from the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille. Under the hashtag #RatatouilleMusical, the idea went viral. Theatre professionals of every sort posted videos of songs, sets, and production numbers. By November, plans evolved for a complete professional and virtual production which was shown from January 1-5, raising more than a million dollars for The Actor's Fund.
