Dunder Mifflin is back in business.

In case you’ve already re-watched The Office for the umpteenth time on Netflix, you’ll soon have the chance to see your favourite paper company employees live on for another day.

Only they’re taking their crazy antics from your TV screen to the stage.

This summer, the off-Broadway performance, The Office! A Musical Parody, is heading to Toronto for a four-week run at Mirvish’s CAA Theatre from July 30 through August 25.

The musical pays homage to some of the best moments in the show, kicking off with a typical morning at the Scranton paper company, when, for whatever reason, a documentary crew starts filming the fairly average lives of Dunder Mifflin employees.

The musical features songs such as “Welcome to Scranton (The Electric City),” “That’s What She Said,” “The Dundies,” “Marry Me Beesly,” and more, all while lovingly poking fun at the hit TV show.

“The Office! A Musical Parody is now one of the most successful off-Broadway shows in history. As Michael might say, ‘It’s been a dream come thru,’” said Tobly McSmith, one of the writers of the musical.

McSmith is one of two of the masterminds behind the musical, along with his co-writer Bob McSmith.

Together, the pair have created FRIENDS! The Musical Parody, Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical, Full! House! The Musical (Starring Perez Hilton), Katdashians! The Musical, Showgirls! The Musical, and JonBenet! Murder Mystery Theater.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, April 13 on Mirvish.com.

The Office! A Musical Parody

When: July 30 to August 25
Time: Tuesday to Saturday, 8 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 2 pm; Sunday evening, 7 pm
