High School Performs Dr. Horrible Live on Stage Tonight

Right about now, someone’s handing someone else the keys to a shiny new Australia. Tonight is the opening performance of the first authorized high school production of Joss Whedon’s web spectacular Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.


Dayton, Ohio-based Miami Valley School students came up with the idea themselves and adapted the web musical’s script, according to a report in the local newspaper. Whoever’s manning the Dr. Horrible Twitter account is apparently flying in to see a live show tomorrow night.

The high school students most likely didn’t pay for the rights (though we have emails in to ask about that), but they just may have kick-started something bigger. This just screams awesome alternate revenue stream. After all, do we really want to see another amateur interpretation of Annie?

Check out the poster above. I particularly love the young Captain Hammer, who looks just like I imagine Nathan Fillion did before all the protein shakes and personal trainers.
