EnQueek! – Encore / Our First Musicals

Theater kids eventually have to grow up, but Encore! has given them a chance to relive their glory days. We watched the new Disney+ series that follows former casts of high school musicals as they remount their original productions. They have five days to rehearse before curtain, all while also navigating old flings, new hip injuries, and the eternal urge to start a massage train. We also decided to relive our OWN glory days and watch each other’s old school musicals. We reveled in the cracked voices and grapevining that made up “You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Werewolf” (2004) and “Aliens in Paradise” (2004), two shows that have aged just like their stars: with mixed results. If you want to give these former theater nerds (and current everything else nerds) your support, head over to Apple Podcasts and leave Queeks a review. And tell your old castmates to listen to this episode! You know your old Facebook group is still up.
