TikTok has revealed that it’ll be creating its first original TikTok musical.
Musical theatre has become popular on the social media app. Latest trends show that the #musical received 6.4 billion views and recently a TikTok creator won a Grammy for their musical which they posted to the app.
This musical will be called For You, Paige – a play on the words – for your page – where users can find trending videos.
What will the musical be about?
For You, Paige, will tell the story of teenage music fan Landon who works with his best friend Paige on a TikTok song inspired by her favourite book series.
After Landon’s TikTok goes viral, a producer gives him an opportunity that gives him fame but he leaves Paige behind.
But Landon discovers that doing it all himself isn’t the same and asks Paige and the TikTok community for help with the show.
The idea for the musical came from Daniel Mertzlufft, who has been posting behind the scenes to the app about who has been cast, rehearsals, and recording sessions.
Mertzlufft was the creator of the successful Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, which was based on the Disney Pixar film.
