Songs For A New World

Performing at South Broward High School Drama Department (Apr 18 - Apr 23)

Runtime: 2 Hours 10 Minutes


Synopsis

It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice... or take a stand... or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.

Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams... and a soulless marriage.

With a small, powerhouse multi-ethnic cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today's popular music, Songs for a New World is a great way to bring the next generation into the theatre.

South Broward High School Drama Department

The South Broward High School drama department was awarded many top honors in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Their extensive list of accomplishments started at The Florida Theater Conference, where their one act play received straight superior ratings, and KiDane Kelati received the best supporting actor of the entire state festival. The first musical production of the year, entitled Next to Normal, was phenomenally received, and was selected for an exclusive performance at the State Thespian Festival in Tampa. At the district individual events competition, the troupe received a record 18 superiors, which included a jaw-dropping two "critic's choice" selections. In addition, one piece was selected as the best "critic's choice" in the entire district, and received the honor of performing in the opening showcase of the state competition for an audience of 7500 people. Finally, at the district one act competition, the one act play entitled The Pillowman, received straight superiors and was selected to also perform at the state festival. This is the second year in a row that South Broward has received this honor.
