Star Child – Book by: Jennifer Stafford, Music by: Josh Freilich Lyrics by: Sarah Underwood
Based on Oscar Wilde’s short stories, this fun-filled musical follows Mattan, the self-proclaimed “most beautiful boy in the world”. When a suave Marketing Man comes to town to send Mattan on tour, his fame goes to his head. However, when he becomes so self-centered and cruel that a witch takes his beauty, he must go on a journey and learn to see beauty through the eyes of others.
Chez Morgan – Book and Lyrics by: W. Joseph Matheson, Music by: Logan Medland
The original ‘torch singer’ and star of Broadway’s Showboat, Helen Morgan’s life couldn’t have been more melodramatic if scripted by a Hollywood writer. From singing French folk songs in Toronto railyards to beauty pageants in Montreal, to Ziegfeld chorus girl and Ziegfeld’s greatest leading lady, to losing the three men she loved most, Helen Morgan lived a life as colorful and heartbreaking as any of her songs.
