FALL: THE ROCK MUSICAL TO BE HELD AT THE NIAGARA ARTS & CULTURAL CENTER
An original work encompassing the elements of theatre and rock music
“Fall: The Rock Musical,” written and directed by local playwright Billy Horn, is returning to the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center in Niagara Falls, to be performed for two consecutive weekends, which are June 10, 11, 12 and 17, 18, 19 in 2011. All shows will be held in the Woodbox Theater and begin at 7:30 p.m.
Director Horn, originally from Niagara Falls, penned the story, which follows an interesting mix of individuals that respond to the civil unrest created from a failed South American Revolution. As the play goes on, the characters sense corruption within their government and seek change. Events in the play mirror current world events and are reminiscent of real life world struggles.
In its entirety the musical is made up of songs composed by Horn. Throughout the duration of the production it contains a healthy balance of guitar thrashing rock music and peaceful ballads, some of which have made their way onto a soundtrack recording, released by Fuse Bomb Records, compiled from last year’s showing of the musical. The music is performed by a cast of talented actor/musicians.
This time around the cast is comprised of a diverse array of seasoned performers, such as off-Broadway performers, theatre students, professional dancers, as well as newcomers who have either just graduated or still attend high school. These artistic individuals partake in showcasing their many skills, which include singing, acting, dancing and fight choreography.
This play is unique in that the entire production is being orchestrated by Fuse Bomb Records, a collection of people known for their DIY style. All of the sets, costumes, lights, special effects, and even some of the instruments, are built in house. The amount of commitment and self sufficiency brought forth by this independent production team could easily rival that of most professional Buffalo theaters in the area.
Tickets for “Fall: The Rock Musical” are $10 and can be purchased at Niagara Art & Cultural Center,
