Doing media work for the new musical drama, The Sparks Fly Upward has been a wonderful experience in expanding our abilities. And, we're grateful.
For those of you who don't yet know about this wonderful musical drama we invite you to visit The Sparks Website and learn more.
In a nutshell, this is the story of three families, two Jewish and one Christian, as they come to realize their "normal" world has been ripped from them and how they cope with their fears, their faith and their hope.
While set in Nazi Germany the musical does much more than tell the story of that time. It is also a call to action to confront bigotry, hate and genocide in our time.
The World Premiere will take place here in Des Moines at Hoyt Sherman on November 8th which is the 70th Anniversary of Krystalnacht. (Go ahead click and read.) It will be conducted by Des Moines Symphony Maestro, Joseph Giunta, directed by Timothy X. Troy and will feature the Des Moines Choral Society and a cast of nearly twenty people.
The piece was written by Cathy Lesser Mansfield of Des Moines. Whom we thank for the opportunity to work on the project.
In the weeks ahead we'll be doing loads of public relations efforts in the Des Moines and the Midwest. If you have a group that would like a presentation, a guest appearance or further information send me an e-mail or give us a call. We'll make it work for you.
