A Big Day.

The script, music and lyrics are complete!
Today is a big day- we are sending our "Baby" out in the an Artistic Director of a Professional Theater for consideration as well as submitting our play to a New Play Festival in Ohio.

This year has flown by and we now have an amazing play, Princess Kim the Musical along with 18 original songs! We have attracted a fabulous international composer/arranger, Premik Russell Tubbs, who is writing the score and composing instrumentals; we have interest from a local professional theater to consider it for production in 2013 as well as interest from an International Rights Organization to license the play!

In 2010, when Maryann asked if I would be interested in working with her to adapt her two published children’s books, Princess Kim and the Lie that Grew & Princess Kim and Too Much Truth, I immediately said “yes”!

I met Maryann at the Boys & Girls Club in Milford, NH where her daughter Janine was an apprentice in my first Creative Drama Theater Camp in 2006. We instantly realized we have an amazing creative rapport and when I introduced Andrew Cass as composer to our creative team we were off and running!  With Maryann’s driving focus we have created, not just one musical, but two! When she was advised that a short Junior Version would be beneficial to the licensing process, we created one! 

Every time we meet it is a love-in of creative energy.  There is respect, expertise and trust on all levels and the play we have created illustrates and contains that same energy! 

We are looking forward to sharing it with you!
