Alan's Confectionery (premiere) - 7pm

1847 E. Burnside St
Portland Oregon
Price: $10.00

Alan Alexander Sr.

SOLD OUT !!!!

It's the first public reading of my new musical "Alan's Confectionery". It's part of the 2015 Fertile Ground Festival!

 

"Some folks can snatch the sweetness out of the cake and never crack the crust".

Alan's entrepreneurial spirit has navigated the family through the Great Depression and World War II. But at least one of his children is plagued with an unanswered question from the past, "What happened to Mama?”. The story takes place in St. Louis in the 30s and 40s. It's a story about family, a mother separated from her children by circumstance and a struggle that she shares with her oldest son to be reunited. The original score is heavily influenced by the music of that period. 

Your donations will help us bring this story to the big stage. You can donate by clicking right here.
