Richardson Auditorium, accompanied by an orchestra of incredible musicians, this multi-media “choral musical” will take us through a time that challenged not only a few, but all of us. Tied together with original dialogue and a thread of contemporary, familiar songs, this show will be the first collaboration of Artistic Director Daniela Sikora and Stage Director Carol Mark.
