Tickets go on sale to the general public for $25 on September 1 at midnight. One extra show may be added if there is high demand. We are told they sell out really fast, so make haste! (You can order a month earlier if you buy a membership to the festival.) For more information, check out the musical’s website and Facebook page. The Facebook page has some interesting background information from the composers about the development of the musical. Check it out!
The musical is also seeking donations. The budget is $100,000, and even a small donation helps (and is tax-deductible)! If this succeeds…Broadway beckons, Gentle Readers. Let’s help them do this!
In other news, casting is currently going on–more news as we get it! In the meantime, enjoy a video from the concert performance in Rochester in 2008:
