Sycamore Pictures has announced that an original motion picture soundtrack for the new film “Speech & Debate” will be released by Broadway Records. The album will be available for pre-order at Amazon.com, iTunes, and BroadwayRecords.com on March 24 and will be released on March 31, according to theatermania.com.
Every pre-order will receive an immediate download of the original song “Losers Are Winners (Flying Free),” performed by Kristin Chenoweth. Sycamore Pictures will donate 10% of all soundtrack sales to the Kristin Chenoweth Arts & Education Foundation, which offers entertainment and artistic enrichment to the community in her home town of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
Directed by Dan Harris, the film stars Sarah Steele (“The Humans”), Liam James (“The Way Way Back”), and Austin P. McKenzie (“Deaf West’s Spring Awakening”). They play Diwata, Solomon, and Howie — three high school misfits linked by a scandal involving one of their teachers, who revive their school’s long-defunct speech and debate society.
The cast also includes Roger Bart, Janeane Garofalo, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Kal Penn, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and Skylar Astin, with cameos by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kristin Chenoweth, and Darren Criss.
