A small cast and band come together to create a comedic, heart-felt, vibrant show with a strong female lead which tells a story that champions platonic love, a rare subject, but one so relatable to any audience.

Local Singles was awarded a grant for a full production through the National Endowment for the Arts as a part of the Pittsburgh Community Supported Artist Performance Series, where it won 5 BroadwayWorld Awards off of 16 nominations.
