Best Musical Nominee


Relive the camp and fun of the 80s in this unofficial parody musical of the iconic T.V. series, Jem and the Holograms.

When Jerrica Benton inherits half of Starlight Music and Starlight House For Orphans, she discovers that they are on the brink of financial ruin due to her father’s strange investment in holograph technology. But a holographic friend may be exactly what she needs to save the house! Synergy, a holograph-creating machine, can transform plain Jerrica into fabulous Jem. Jem and her best friends decide to compete in a bodacious battle of the bands against the gnarly Misfits to win a record deal and save Starlight House.
