FYC – Tara Tremendous The Musical – 60th Grammys – Best Musical Theater Album 2017-10-15T20:06:01+00:00

To All Voting Members:

This album has been a work of passion, joy, learning, excitement, drive, ambition and magic.  Every note, melody, lyric, instrument and even the orchestration you hear is the result of Stewart St John & Michael Plahuta, the composing team who came together to create this project, based on Stewart’s #1 iTunes podcast The Secret Diaries of Tara Tremendous.  The songs are enhanced by a stellar group of performers who bring their immense talents to the production.

The songs tell the exciting, emotional and magical journey of an 11-year-old girl who acquires all the powers of every superhero in the world.

The songs are filled with positive messages about girl-power, believing in yourself, fulfilling a dream, standing up to bullying, staying true to who you really are — and what it really takes to be a hero! These concepts are so vital and important for kids (and grown ups) to remember!

Though it is based on a children’s podcast (which is basically an audio play), we were able to produce a one-night concert in NYC to showcase the songs in front of a live audience.

The show received a standing ovation.

Now the Wonkybot’s (Stewart, Todd and Michael — founders of children/family production, publishing and music company Wonkybot Studios) are working to launch a full musical based on the songs in 2018.


The Album is produced by Stewart St John, Michael Plahuta and Todd Fisher.  Co-Produced by Devin Leigh and Mia Moravis.

The Album features the vocal talents of an amazing cast including:

MiMi Ryder (Matilda The Musical) as Tara Tremendous • Micky Dolenz (The Monkees) as Svettlanna/Mz. Cosmetix • Kecia Lewis (Broadway: Little Mermaid) as Dina Dinosaurus • Mary Stout (Broadway: Beauty and the Beast) as Evelyn Callahan • Annie Golden (Broadway: Hair, Netflix’ Orange Is The New Black) as Epic Mama • Brian Charles Rooney (Broadway: The Threepenny Opera) as Dr. Epic • Bart Shatto (Broadway: Les Miserables) as Detective Nick Callahan • Ramsey Whitney (School Of Rock) as Lydia Benedict • Mia Moravis as Mrs. Addelberry • Devin Leigh as Mighty Bloke • Becky Steinsultz as Lady Bug X • Kellian as Silver Moth • Allie Jordan Butcher as Ashley • Talia Ryder as Brooke • Michael Plahuta as Mr. Barrington and Stewart St John as The Announcer and Mr Sinclair.

Stewart St John & Michael Plahuta

Stewart St. John & Michael Plahuta

Stewart St John & Michael Plahuta are the songwriting duo behind all the songs and music for TARA TREMENDOUS – THE MUSICAL.

They are a unique musical team because they are both composers in their own right.

Stewart first composes the melody and writes the lyrics, then both Stewart and Michael build a symphony, writing each part for a full orchestra until they finally have a song that resonates with both of them.
