A gripping new musical drama from a gifted young creative team (Mariana Elder, Chris Miller, and Nathan Tysen), The Burnt Part Boys follows the unforgettable coming-of-age story of 14-year-old Pete (John-Michael Breen) fighting to claim his past. His older brother Jake (Matt Augustyniak) is hoping to forge a future. With an eclectic band of friends (Joseph Serafini, Logan Williams and Amanda Hawkins) teetering on the brink of adulthood, they've embarked on a life-altering journey to the coal mine that took their fathers' (Chad Elder, Corey Nile Wingard, Brian Barrett and Justin Zeno) lives. With its soaring, elegiac bluegrass and pop-inspired score, this new musical finds both the streaks of light and the heart of darkness within us all.
