Socially-Distanced Musical GAVROCHE Opens This Weekend at StarStruck Theatre
One of the first socially-distanced shows in America opens this weekend in Stuart, Florida. The world premiere of the new musical GAVROCHE, originally slated for April, opens to 50-percent capacity audiences tonight at StarStruck Theatre.
Faced with the unprecedented challenges of the county's Phase 2 guidelines, Artistic Director Jennifer Jones has innovated a new stage direction of the show, becoming one of the first directors in the nation to tackle these limitations in the theatrical world. The rescheduling and reopening of GAVROCHE is a story of perseverance for the theatre, community, and cast of teenagers and kids, set on world-premiering the show.
"Being able to bring this story to life, especially during this precarious time we are all living through, is vital. GAVROCHE is a musical about perseverance, freedom and the ability to cope with change. My young cast members are a model for teamwork and resilience, and will bring tears to all who witness their youthful energy, love and passion performing this stunning new show."
GAVROCHE is a new take on LES MISERABLES, telling the untold story of the teens and kids in the original Victor Hugo book. Featuring a pop, contemporary score by composer/lyricist Bonnie Gleicher (off-Broadway's ADDY & UNO), GAVROCHE is for fans of such enduring musicals as WICKED and ANNIE.
