Written by Adam Gwon, Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love, and cabs. It is an original musical for anyone who’s ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.

This evening's performers will be from the BLUE CAST.

Viewing Codes:

  • Family / Group: $20
  • Individual: $10

A Drive-in Netflix & Chill Movie Night

Miller Stadium Practice Fields

Student Cooperative

Netflix & Chill: Drive InJoin STATIC and MCSLE as we ease back into live events with an in-person film screening of Disney’s Soul on the big screen situated on Miller Stadium's adjacent practice field! Event begins at 8:00 p.m. and movie begins at 8:30 p.m.

Free individually-packaged snacks and drinks will also be available!

In Disney-Pixar’s Soul, “Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) is a middle school band teacher with a love for jazz music. After a successful gig at the Half Note Club, he suddenly gets into an accident that separates his soul from his body and is transported to The Great Before, the place where all souls go before being either reincarnated as newborn babies, or transported to the Great Beyond. Joe must enlist help from the other souls-in-training, like 22 (Tina Fey), a soul who has spent eons in the You Seminar, in order to get back to the Land of the Living before he dies, while also avoiding a soul-counter named Terry (Rachel House), who tries to bring Joe back to the Great Before.”

Please adhere to all COVID-related precautions required at STATIC events, including maximum capacity of 250, I-card scanning, mandatory mask usage, enhanced disinfection and cleaning, enforced 6-ft social distancing from others, and more as indicated on event signage and announcements.
