MUSICAL THEATRE

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

 

Journey to a faraway kingdom torn apart by magic, fear and lies, where a young boy, spurned by his father, and a girl, who refuses to accept the status quo, are trying to find their way. This newly imagined work ushers today's audience on an exploration of the true nature of love, honesty and redemption.

The Northern Skies

An inventor and her colleague venture to the top of the world to research the arctic

circle’s prehistoric inhabitants in the hopes of preventing the environmental catastrophe that

threatens to destroy their city. Joined by the mission’s investor, and a small crew, the members of this

expedition grapple with capital interest, scientific absolutism, and the haunting figures of their intertwining pasts.
