Beau tells the story of Ace Baker, who at 12 discovers the grandfather his mother intended to keep a secret. A man who changes Ace's life forever by putting a guitar in his hand, and self - love in his heart.
The album's full creative team includes music supervision/arrangements by Chris Gurr (The Prom), and orchestration by Pakchar. The recording is produced by Douglas Lyons, Ethan D. Pakchar and Chris Gurr.
Directed by Michael Wilson (A Trip to Bountiful), with choreography by Bright Star's Josh Rhodes, Beau made its debut production this summer at The Adirondack Theatre Festival, with support from The StoryLine Project, LLC.
