SUMMARY

Skyline is inspired by the common dreams that everyone has had in their lives -- flight. Not flight by aircraft, but flight by the simple act of wanting to flap our arms and soar above the clouds. From the soaring anthem of the first impact, to the delicate melodies of the emotional ballad, and the uplifting, energetic ending, audiences and judges will be captivated by the musical book! There are endless visual possibilities to accompany this beautiful piece of music, and tons of ways to portray this story.
