FYC – Tara Tremendous The Musical – 60th Grammys – Best Musical Theater Album Wonkybot Studios
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 ofStewart 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.

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.
