CATEGORY FIVE

SUMMARY

Category Five tells the story of a devastating storm sweeping through a populous area, and deals with the effects of destruction and calamity after it makes its way through. The show begins on a calm day, but it gradually turns sinister with Science as the storm looms ahead, getting closer and closer. Into the Storm takes you into the chaos of the storm, while the ballad reflects on its devastation and destruction. But not all hope is lost... we must rebuild. Through the inspiring use of the main theme from Twister and I Can See Clearly Now, people push on and begin anew. We are stronger than any storm.

Empty Nest


EMPTY NEST

Empty Nest


EMPTY NEST

SUMMARY

Empty Nest tells the story about the journey of parenthood, as parents watch their newborn children grow into toddlers, then teenagers, then young adults, until they are finally ready to "leave the nest." This idea is metaphorically translated into the lives of birds as they hatch, being dependent on their parents, until they are ready to take flight and leave the nest. There are tons of opportunities here for beautiful visuals, as well as the chance to tell a simultaneously joyous and tearjerking story as we watch our kids grow up to be their own person as an adult, no longer requiring the safety net of "the nest."

FEARLESS


FEARLESS

FEARLESS


FEARLESS

SUMMARY

Fearless is a show inspired by Maya Angelou's famous poem, "Still I Rise." It is a show about how someone can rise up from any adversity, turmoil, and difficult situation with enough bravery, courage, determination and fearlessness. The intensity of the Main Title Theme from Vacancy and the End Credits from Coraline depict the horrors of the negative circumstances enshrouding the characters (whether it's one character, several, or the whole band... the visual opportunities and story ideas are endless). Time invokes a tearjerking response to the characters desperately trying to gather enough courage to rise up above the struggle. Two Hearts begins our characters' journey into The Light, where they triumphantly overcome their fears and their struggles and stand tall in the face of adversity.

Icarus


ICARUS

SUMMARY

In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from the island of Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus' father warns him neither to fly too low nor too high, so the sea's dampness would not clog his wings or the sun's heat melt them, and so to follow his path of flight. However, overcome with excitement and joy, Icarus ignores his father's instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and so the wax in his wings melted, causing him to fall from the sky and into the sea.

Prismatic


PRISMATIC

SUMMARY

Prismatic explores the concept of the transition from the absence of color, to an explosion of colors. We begin in The Void... total blackness. As the music progresses, we begin to see hints of white light shine through, gradually bringing in more and more color to the music itself. In the percussion feature, the white light becomes blinding, leading to chaos and confusion... until we see our first hint of color. From there, the colors begin to gradually unfold, until an explosion of color assaults our senses for the big and bold finale, thus completing the journey from void to spectrum.

DAWN OF A NEW DAY

SUMMARY

Everyone goes through rough times in their lives. Everyone has their fair share of experiences where they can't seem to dig themselves out of a hole, whether created by themselves or something external in their lives. Dawn of a New Day explores this concept, beginning dark and tumultuous. But as the show continues on, you start to realize that there is a light at the end of the tunnel after all, and everything, in the end, is going to be okay. The show ends with a triumphant and victorious feeling that reflects overcoming hardships and beginning the start of a new day, looking towards the future, and never towards the darker past.

RISE

SUMMARY

RISE is a show that can be taken in a variety of different visual and storytelling directions. One can depict the sun, or the moon, while another concept could be the idea of triumphant defeat through various struggles, and subsequently rising from them. You could even go way out there and put performers on various rising platforms and mechanisms throughout the show. The music, along with the simple concept, give way to a ton of storytelling and general effect possibilities, allowing your design team to be at their most creative!
