GLEE CLUB

Genre: Comedy
Matthew Freeman and directed by Kyle Ancowitz

About eight misfit members of Romeo, Vermont’s cut-throat Glee Club. They are on the verge of meltdown after their soloist makes the disastrous decision to save his own life. Will they be ready in time for the big recital? And isn’t music the most important thing? GLEE CLUB is a comedy about singing. Singing makes people happy.
