DMR Mainstage Production:
Written and Composed by Jonathan Christenson
The MAINSTAGE BROADWAY ADVENTURE program offers a fast-paced & FUN education in musical theatre: singing, dancing, and acting, while working towards a culminating production, often with experienced adult actors. DMR Adventures specializes in pre-professional training in musical theatre – our staff is made up of a combination of professionally trained actors, singers, and dancers, alongside wonderful volunteers. Your child will receive an understanding of and training in acting, singing, and dance technique, they will learn theatrical terminology and etiquette, and they will build confidence and explore their creative side in a safe, encouraging and challenging environment. We encourage all levels to join this adventure — one of our core beliefs is that we never stop learning — and our best experiences come from being a part of productions with both new faces and experienced actors.
Audition Dates are:
Tuesday, Oct. 9 6-9PM
Tuesday, Oct 16, 6-9PM
Call Backs are Friday, Oct. 19 5:30-8:30PM
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there is no cost to be involved in this production for students.
A small transportation stipend will be provided to adult actors cast in the production (over 18).
Director: Celena Cox
Music Director: Xavier Taylor
This unique and wildly theatrical musical combines haunting music and poetic storytelling to chronicle the fascinating life of iconic American writer, Edgar Allan Poe. A literary rock star of his day, Poe struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produces some of the world’s most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore explores the events that shape Poe’s character and career, blurring the line between fact and fiction — after all, as Poe himself writes, “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
“Esquisitely stylish…a gothic fantasia.”
—The New York Times
“Startling, beautiful, and haunting”
“Wonderfully creepy and mesmerizing.”
—The Huffington Post
