Joyah recently played the role of Miranda Cole-Stebbings in the first reading of The State Of Hockeyat New York University's Graduate Musical Theatre Program. This piece is a new musical by MandaLeigh Blunt and Jeff Wildermuth set in modern day Minnesota. When the pro hockey team is sold to New Mexico, the teenage son of a legendary hockey player rallies the community to fight the sale, using social media as their weapon. Rally turns to riot and are unable to save the team, but are able to come together for their team’s final game. It’s energetic and bittersweet with a rock score that includes arena, classic, and pop rock, and features hockey inspired choreography.
