BREAKDOWN

ATF 2020 BREAKDOWN

THE MOON & THE SEA
A Broken Love Story
Book by Douglas Lyons
Music & Lyrics by Creighton Irons
Directed by Josh Rhodes
June 12-20
Along with their friend Elijah, Charlie and Erin revisit the beach where years before they experienced a miracle--the moon and the sea fell in love and became one. When Erin unexpectedly brings her new fiancee, Charlie is forced to confront the idea that their love is finished and made to wonder whether the event that changed his life even happened at all.
OPEN: June 12, 2020
CLOSE: June 20, 2020
MOON & (OTHERS)- The Moon is a force. Always encouraging love and longing through every vocal. (DEBORAH) is Charlie’s very Jewish and overbearing mother. (RHONDA) the Tonga Jungle bartender. Early 30’s-40’s. Truly any ethnicity.
SEA & (OTHERS) - The Sea seduces you with his sound. Always sweeping you away with the smoothest vocals. (FRANKIE) is the bubbly bar owner of Charlie’s local bar. Early 30’s-40’s. Truly any ethnicity.
CHARLIE- A complicated soul with a broken heart. To navigate his healing he’s abandoned his music. Mid 20’s-30’s. Truly any ethnicity.
ELIJAH - He’s constantly unaware of his volume. The best-friend and hype man full of fantastic intentions, coupled with poor timing. He’s gross and sloppy, but always has the largest heart in the room. Natural comedian. Mid 20’s-30’s. Truly any ethnicity.
ERIN- She’s sweet but firm. Big decisions scare her so she tends to run from her potential. Mid 20’s-30’s. Truly any ethnicity.
DOUG- Erin’s new fiancé. He’s a surfer-hippy-dude, always striking up conversation with random people in attempts to connect with them. Mid 20’s-30’s. Truly any ethnicity.

All is peaceful at the Harmony Hill retirement community – the rooms are comfy, the meals are tasty, and the citizen-run radio station is a hit (even if it only plays hits from the past).

OPENS: July 31, 2020
CLOSE: August 7, 2020
The musical score is in the style of the Great American Songbook, very much akin to Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin.
