PARTICLE follows 16-year-old Cora who gets recruited onto a professional eSports team. She’s always been her brother’s gaming sidekick and as the youngest member of a world-class team, she feels in way over her head. When her brother gets sick she wants to quit, but he convinces her to stay–and make her way to the championship.

8th Annual ĭmáGen Event

In its eighth year, the 2021 ĭmáGen collaboration is a staged concert featuring Broadway directors, actors and choreographers as they collaborate with MSU musical theatre students, dance students, and local high school actors in the creation of the new musical, Particle.

This musical theatre immersion program at Michigan State University is a collaborative venture with the Wharton Center Institute for Arts & Creativity and MSU College of Arts & Letters’ Department of Theatre with support by MSU Federal Credit Union.
