New York Music Festival
For the past several years I’ve had the honor of collaborating with some very talented people to turn my Backbeard books into a musical. Today I’m proud to announce some big news: Our little show, Backbeard, has been chosen as a Grand Jury Selection of the New York Musical Festival, one of only eleven selected from a pool of 220 nation-wide. We’re taking it to New York for a week of performances this summer. Big city here we come!

For the past two years I’ve had the honor of collaborating with some very talented people to turn my Backbeard books into a musical. Last night, we had our first, rough run-through of the show to hear how everything fits together. These were all volunteers (the show has not been cast yet) and some of the songs are only a few days old. I am constantly amazed how quickly these talented actors can learn their parts, songs and harmonies. The show is really coming together and can’t wait to see how it turns out when it opens in June. Mark your calendars!
