DANCE MOMS Fans Rise Up for THE PYRAMID: A DANCE MOMS PARODY MUSICAL
2011 was full of iconic pop culture phenomena, from the royal wedding to the premiere of the last Harry Potter, it was quite the memorable year. But nothing was quite like the cultural reset that Dance Moms would become. The show premiered on Lifetime in 2011, and captivated audiences for its fly on the wall capture of Abby Lee Miller’s treatment of the child dancers and the competitive bickering of their moms. While some of the stars from the show have gone on to find true stardom (Jojo Siwa especially), nothing is quite as iconic as the pyramid.
The pyramid was a means of ranking the dancers based on their previous performance, with Maddie nearly always nabbing that top spot. Now, there’s a whole new way to enjoy the drama and fun of Dance Moms with The Pyramid: A Dance Moms Parody Musical.
The Pyramid reflects on cultural hegemony and complacency, the sadistic rule of instructor Abby Lee Miller, and the valiant strive for the top of the pyramid.
The cast features Gabriella Joy Rodriguez as dedicated mother “Christi,” Max Heitmann as rival studio owner “Cathy,” Erica Molfetto as Kendall’s dramatic mother “Jill,” Molly Russo as Brooke’s mom “Kelly,” Senzel Ahmady as “Maddie, Jessalyn, and Background Vocals”, Morgan Dudley as “Chloe, Holly, and Background Vocals”, and Isabel Grace as “Kendall, Background Vocals.”
In the first released song, “My Little Kendall,” Dance Mom Jill vies for Abby’s attention and daughter Kendall’s rightful spot on the top of the pyramid. “My Little Kendall” is now available on Spotify and Apple Music.
The show features music and lyrics by James Stryska and Isabel Grace, a book by Erica Molfetto and Molly Russo, music direction by James Stryska, and orchestrations by Katherine Cartusciello.
