Suggested by Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”  Book and Lyrics by Neil K. Newell Music and Lyrics by C. Michael Perry (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools,  Church Groups, Youth Theatres) You thought you knew “The Tempest”? Well, get ready for this version. We start before Shakespeare begins. We see Propsero and Miranda arrive. We see Ariel deposit Sycorax and Caliban on the isle. We see Ariel impaled in the ‘oak’ and we see Propsero defeat Sycorax. We then see Sycorax come to life again through the intervention of  Caliban and the strangers deposited on the island by Prospero’s tempest. As in the original, goodness prevails but only after valuable lessons have been learned by all. This story now involves the conflict between Sycorax/Caliban and Prospero. It is no longer an epic but a taught, musical...

And The Rains Came — And Came

Posted on Mar 14, 2013 in Child and Youth Audiences, Intergenerational Theatre, Musicals, Religious Titles

 A Musical Story of Noah Book and Lyrics by R. Rex Stephenson Music by Gary Evans (For production by Community Groups, High Schools, Middle Schools/Junior High Schools, Elementary Schools, Church Groups, Children’s Theatres/Youth Theatres) Rex originally wrote the play when the world was entering a new millennium. He thought that the story best typified the ‘new beginning’ that the world was facing; a story filled with both good and evil, trust and mistrust, obedience and disobedience, and with believing and disbelieving. But the appeal goes beyond any millennium and gets right down to what makes us tick. This Inter-generational Theatre Piece uses multi-age casting to achieve its objective: bringing its message to a broad, family audience. The score is fun and moves the show along. Also included in the evening are moments of great poignancy, such as the surprise...

Book Music and Lyrics by James G. Lambert & C. Michael Perry (For production by  College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Church Groups, Youth Theatres) A musical drama, biographical in nature, yet full of life, romance, beautiful music, energetic dances, with problems and solutions unique to Latter-Day-Saint culture of the period between 1830 and 1848. It is the story of Jedediah Grant as told by his namesake, Jedediah Smith. This story is basically true and generally historically accurate, certain events have been telescoped in the interest of dramatic license. The characters of Salina Wells, the Westbridges, William Blodgett and the Weems’ are composites of several people of the era. All the other characters herein were real people and the events portrayed actually happened. Some license was taken with ages and characterizations in the interest of contrast and humor, however,...

Tom Sawyer — A Musical

 Book, Music & Lyrics by C. Michael Perry (TYA) (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Middle Schools/Junior High Schools, Church Groups, Children’s Theatres/Youth Theatres) Adapted from the Mark Twain novel, this TOM SAWYER tells the story of Tom & Huck and Tom & Becky as teenagers, not young children, theirs is a story of adolescent awakening — the plot is woven together by the ominous thread of Injun Joe who wants revenge on Tom. The story is intact and most of the familiar scenes are there, but, many of the wonderful scenes skipped over by other dramatists are included to heighten the subplot and conflict of the Injun Joe side of the story. The musical has heart and doesn’t whitewash the characters or the events. Yet, it still remains a musical that the entire...
