Don’t Miss The Shopping Cart

2 - leads

Once again, The Joshua Generation brings down the house with an intriguing tale of love, loss and the consequences of what you put in your cart at Lifemart.

When you are shopping at “Lifemart” what you grab off the shelf can have lasting consequences, for good or ill. So, choose wisely. That is the overarching message of “The Shopping Cart,” an exciting, original musical theater presentation brought to you by The Joshua Generation, a Brandon-based theater troupe. 


2 - Group, funny

The show mixes dance, vocals and video to create a unique and engrossing theatrical narrative. The story is based on the familiar “Boy Meets Girl” theme, but, in this context, it connects in a whole new way.

Theatre fans familiar with The Joshua Generation know to expect crisp dance moves, powerful singing and connective drama, and, even in the dress rehearsal, these kids don’t disappoint.




Sometimes, when watching interpretive dance, the story can get lost in the action. Not here. Ugly duckling is taken in by Mean Girls. Transformed, she meets Mr. Right and they set off happily ever after.

But the honeymoon is over quickly in this story. They fell in love on the dance floor, but, soon, life begins pulling them apart. Work, bros and a certain jealous “friend” tear the pages of the storybook romance.
