THE BUTTERFLIES’ PROMISE: A VOCALOID JUKEBOX MUSICAL
By Joseph Sheridan
Presented by New Wave Theatre Company
Best friends Danica, Allison, and Ryan are starting their first semester of college in the town where they grew up. They were hoping for an easy and smooth transition to school, but life gets in the way. The Butterflies’ Promise will be performed as a musical tour through songs originally performed using the Vocaloid voice synthesizer software that chronicle the trio’s journey through their first semester as they laugh, love, cry, and find their own identities through a turbulent coming-of-age.
THE END OF THE WORLD
A play by Baxter Whitehead
Two men sit together at the end of the world, grappling with the sheer incomprehensibility of what has happened. As they talk about the meaning of life and grief in this subtext-rich short drama, the hidden truth of their situation slowly comes to light.
A play by Ruby Gray
What does it mean to be a woman? In Time follows two sets of people, one “then” and one “now”, as they find love, identity, and a chance for liberation. Alternating vignettes reveal that these moments in time are not as different as they may seem. Through letters, balls, texts, and unexpected encounters, Sarah, Cecilia, Sam, and Casey learn what it means to see and be seen. Recipient of the 2021 Miami University Theatre Gallagher Playwriting Award.
A film by Jordan Myers
ONE is a story about a young woman named Jess who is faced with a world where man-eating demons inhabit all reflective surfaces. Your cell phone, computer screen, mirror…nothing is safe. Daily routines become deadly. In a horrifying sequence of incidents and close-calls, Jess must stop the demons from preying on herself, her friends, her family, and ultimately the world.
