The project is a period book musical freely adapted from a popular novel in the public domain. This story contains strong characterizations in a timely serio-comic plot and is designed as a showcase for multi-talented performers. Romance, villainy, stage combat and clowning round out this accessible, mainstream entertainment.
Candidates must be skilled in revealing character/extending narrative action through song and possess a love of language, knowledge of history, a passion for musical theatre, a contemporary sensibility and ability to collaborate.
I am an accomplished librettist and versatile composer who can write in a variety of styles (traditional, pop, classical) with an individual voice. My work has been successfully produced in major regional theatres across the U.S. for two decades.
I'm between musicals now, having created three. One has had full production, out of which videos a DVD was created, and it's undergoing a couple of changes at the behest of a new director. A second (an experimental/"immersive" work in one act -- 90 minutes rt)) has had staged readings. The third is in the process of being arranged.
Working as the lyricist on your piece sounds like it would be fun and interesting.
