Each year, the Music Department presents an original musical theater production directed by Dr. Penny Prince. With dialogue written by the cast and songs by Dr. Prince, past performances have included fairy tales Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, and Sleeping Beauty, the fantastical science-fiction farce Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, and the historical drama When I Get To Where I'm Going: the story of the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycotts.
The 2013 Original Musical will be Rumpelstiltskin, a story of bullying and friendship with music, choreography and original dialogue collaboratively written by the cast. Please click here for audition information.
The videoclip features the Needles and Pins scene from Sleeping Beauty '10. The royal court has just learned of the fatal threat by Witch Katrina, and they must find and destroy every sharp object to protect Princess Aurora. The cast is comprised of Lehman College students and alumni. Dr. Prince, the composer, is at the piano, and Taichi Akutsu '10 is the royal violinist.
