Songs for a New World, by Jason Robert Brown, is a musical with a collection of characters and powerful songs, which examines life, love and the choices that we make. Their hopes and dreams, their fears and failures conjure up images of explorers setting out to find new lands (literally or emotionally), but it is their hopes and dreams that light the way to a new world. This is a story about the light at the end of the tunnel. Finding hope and beauty in the darkness of night or as the sun rises. This performance features a cast of 24 students.
