Songs for a New World
We're in the process of mounting an Edinburgh Fringe run of Jason Robert Brown's first musical, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD. Our Fringe guide entry can be found here: Songs for a New World.
We'll be posting updates with rehearsal footage here, too.
Although we have planned various fundraising activities already, in order to cover the immense costs of taking a musical to the Edinburgh Fringe (rights and musical rehearsal material, venue hire, registration and admin fees) we need to raise as much as we possibly can.
As we are all desperate to perform at the festival, individual cast and crew members are all happy to pay for their own travel and accommodation costs for the month - we just really need some support to get there - instruments, set, performance space, and all.
Our theatrical experience spans many different shows and genres, but our collective musical theatre experience includes the following:
THE LAST FIVE YEARS, CABARET (X2), RENT (X2), SPRING AWAKENING, GUYS AND DOLLS, JEKYLL AND HYDE, COMPANY, INTO THE WOODS, FAME, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET and MD James Robert Ball's original composition, RED SNOW
If there is any way in which you could possibly help us out in our endeavours, we would really, really appreciate it.
