UND’s Department of Theater Arts presents “Songs for a New World” for home viewing April 16-17 and April 22-24.
The production can be viewed online. Tickets can be purchased through the UND Theater online box office at burtness.und.edu.
The musical, by Tony Award-winning Jason Robert Brown, is about arriving at a crossroads and surviving a new set of circumstances. It’s a moving collection of powerful songs that examine life, love, and the choices people make.
Directed and choreographed by Chelsea Chimilar, the play features “a surprising array of characters that takes the audience on a journey of transformation with every unique character,” according to a press release.
The contemporary score, conducted by Brent Mauldin, spans the gamut of popular music in a production that revolves around a common theme – the moment of decision, the moment when a person goes from the old to the new.
The cast members are: Erin Chaves, Katie Germain, Robert Cooper, Kyle Mason, Piper Sommer, Stevee Wittlieb, Daniel Jung, Tyler Hebert and Trece Hopp.
The band members are: Brent Mauldin, Lane Lindseth, Maya Zepeda and Katie Ellis.
The members of the technical team are: Shelby Hazel, Brad Reissig, Sarah Kohler and Tyler Smith.
Individual tickets cost $ 25 and a group ticket is $ 25. Group tickets will allow the show to be viewed by members of the group or household.
