The Tony Award-winning theatrical production company Seaview will present, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, for one performance only on Friday, January 1, 2021 at 7:00pm ET to benefit The Actors Fund.
After gaining momentum on TikTok, the viral Ratatouille musical videos have been viewed by more than 200 million fans around the world. These videos have included the creation of an opening number, laments, character development songs, set design and performances by Broadway actors all dedicated to the 2007 Disney Pixar film about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef.
“The love for the performing arts shines through in the Ratatouille-inspired TikToks from theater lovers around the world. We’re truly honored that producer Greg Nobile and Seaview will be bringing that love and collaborative spirit to this creative project, which is sure to bring joy to arts lovers far and wide this holiday season, while at the same time will help raise much-needed funds for those in need in our entertainment and performing arts community,” said Actors Fund President & CEO Joseph P. Benincasa.
“It has been magical to watch the TikTok community create and embrace the #RatatouilleMusical. From @e_jaccs’ original ode to Remy to @shoeboxmusicals’ set designs, seeing the endless creativity of the platform and the wider community rallying around it has inspired and driven a new forum for theater lovers to express themselves, participate, and enjoy the show. In a year where we saw Broadway close, the TikTok community brought musical fans together virtually with one of the most unique trends we have ever seen on platform,” added Lizzy Hale, Senior Manager of Content, TikTok US.
