VIDEO: Inside Rehearsal For Mountain Theatre Company's BKLYN THE MUSICAL

Mountain Theatre Company's production of BKLYN: THE MUSICAL runs September 23 - October 16, 2022.

Mountain Theatre Company released a new video featuring rehearsal footage and interviews for their upcoming production of BKLYN: THE MUSICAL.

BKLYN: THE MUSICAL is a fast-paced, modern fairy tale, set on a street corner in Brooklyn, that tells a tapestry of stories as rich and inspiring as the borough that inspired it. A show within a show, a troupe of street performers share a story from their lives; then there is the story they tell - the story of a young girl using her gifts and voice to find the father she never knew. Together these stories create a show that is both touching and inspiring, and full of unforgettable songs bubbling with the energy of a Brooklyn street. BKLYN: THE MUSICAL celebrates the gifts we have to give, the journey we take to share them, and the hands that guide us along the way.

With book, music, and lyrics by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, the project's creative team includes Scott Daniel (Director), Donna Rendely Peeler (Vocal Direction), Cody Basham (Lighting Design), and Stephen Kraack (Sound Design).

Mountain Theatre Company's production of BKLYN: THE MUSICAL runs September 23 - October 16, 2022 at The Highlands Playhouse, located at 362 Oak Street in Highlands, NC. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased in person at the Highlands Playhouse Box Office at 362 Oak Street, by phone at (828) 526-2695 or online at www.mountaintheatre.com.
