Qatar Foundation began teaching musical theatre to students across the country with the aim of holding a live show, but this was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Instead of letting that hard work go to waste, The Edge Picture Company were asked to film the musical performances to be broadcast for the world, where it has gone on to win multiple short video awards.

The crew was made up of 55 Qatar Foundation staff members and students aged seven to 55, plus 20 crew members, who filmed performances at Qatar National Convention Center and Qatar Science and Technology Park, as well as Ceremonial Court, Oxygen Park, and Qatar National Library.

We can’t wait to see this live.
