This quirky and cute modern musical is brought to you from Chime Communications Canada, where five ordinary office workers must mount a team-building talent show to save their jobs. Meet Stuart, the lovable yet inappropriate office manager; Marcus, the smooth talking sales rep; Diane, the tough as nails marketing manager; Brie, the perky and scheming receptionist; and Jack, the awkward guitar-playing intern. Together, they must use their hidden talents to sing, dance and manipulate their way through the talent show, which ultimately degenerates into an every-man-for-himself battle of office skills, where only one will walk away without a pink slip. Featuring a sales versus marketing salsa, a foul-mouthed printer puppet, and more office backstabbing than HR can handle, the team must learn to keep it together without tearing each other apart.
