SOLANA explores the question in every adopted child's heart: Why? For Chloe Ellsworth, an Asian-American girl growing up among the apple trees of her family's Midwestern farm, it is a question she has almost stopped asking - until a mysterious royal procession appears to sweep her back to the land of her birth... Solana. What happens next is a journey of love and courage for Chloe and both families who claim her as their own. Solana is a musical that asks the brave questions: What's more important, the family who brings you into this world, or the family that teaches you how to live in it?

The team included scenic renderings by Paul Tate DePoo III. sound design by John Shivers, casting by Jason Styres, CSA, stage manager Chris Gunn, percussionist Everett Bradley (Bon Jovi), and general management by Evan Bernardin Productions (Million Dollar Quartet Nat'l Tour).
