Creighton University's Fine and Performing Arts presentation of “Songs for a New World,” is part of a series of weeklong events celebrating the inauguration of Timothy R. Lannon, S.J., as the University’s 24th president.
The musical theater production will run from Sept. 28 to Oct. 9, at the Studio Theatre in the Lied Education Center for the Arts.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m Sept. 28 – Oct. 1, and Oct. 5- 8., with matinee performances at 2 p.m. Sunday Oct. 2 and Oct. 9.
The show takes the audience from a ship deck in 1492, to a penthouse in New York. The musical is comprised of 17 independent scene-songs that include a vast array of characters. From a young man who has determined that basketball is his trip out of the ghetto, to a son struggling to reconcile his father’s failure in a risky business, to a woman whose dream is of marrying rich.
The musical theater production will take you on a ride of adventure, emotion and humor that will attract all generations.
