About Tone Deaf
Tone Deaf is an original a cappella musical comedy about love, friendship, and of course, a cappella competitions!
Tony, a small town high school graduate is excited to join his first ever collegiate a cappella group at his new College. He has always loved a cappella, but his high school didn’t have a group. There is only one problem: he is tone deaf and doesn’t know it. The story follows a cappella dreams, struggles, and gives a window inside how groups prepare for a cappella competitions.

Why Choose Tone Deaf?
School musicals and plays are important because they build pride and confidence in students, as well as bring together the community and create school spirit. They are ways to showcase what students are learning, and they are great ways to raise money for programs, causes or departments. The cost of putting on a school musical can be quite the process, not to mention, expensive. Often, the cost associated with putting on a show doesn’t make sense for how much revenue it will bring in, and it’s avoided all together.
It can be a challenging for performance arts departments in schools to put on broadway musicals and plays. Cost, among many other factors, can hinder a school’s options. Tone Deaf’s author, Dr. Rollo Fisher, addresses many of these issues:
Putting on a musical performance costs money. Performance rites, performance space, hiring musicians, set design, renting/owning wireless microphones, costume rental, and more are all expenses that need to be addressed. And then you have to consider what you’ll make from the show. What if not as many people buy tickets as you need to cover the costs?
With Tone Deaf, your cost is so low, you are almost guaranteed to make money.
