Description

Dark Nights: The Musical

Libretto by L. Kalo Gow

Music by Yotam Baum

Directed by L. Kalo Gow

November 13 – 23

Theatre UNO is doing something we have never done before. We are putting on the world premiere of a brand-new musical written by professor, L. Kalo Gow. Our students are being given the opportunity to work with the playwright to create these characters from scratch, choreograph the show, and even help direct the show. UNO students will help to shape the show and give a shining example for all future productions to look to.

ABOUT:

DARK NIGHTS: THE MUSICAL is a new Musical Dramedy about a young woman who chooses to resist peer pressure and rise above socioeconomic challenges to reach for a promising future. Alyssa is reeling from her mother’s death and father’s alcoholism. She tries to parent her rebellious younger sister but, combined with the stresses of high school and work, the pressure is overwhelming. Alyssa and her friends seek solace and escape, but soon discover the dark side of teen rites. A period piece set in the iconic/ironic 90s, the narrative hangs on timeless teen issues: first love, betrayal, recklessness, sex, teen dogma, drug abuse, and desire for acceptance. DARK NIGHTS: THE MUSICAL is a coming of age journey, wherein Alyssa searches for and finds hope for a better life.
