Morey, Dean participate in MU Theatre musical
ALLIANCE — The University of Mount Union’s Department of Theatre presented the musical “Songs for a New World,” with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, March 25 through 28.
The stage performance included local students Olivia Morey of Alliance as part of the performing ensemble and Kylie Dean of Beloit as part of the production staff.
The abstract musical masterpiece featured a series of songs all connected by a common theme – “the moment of decision.” While there are four characters described in the show, each character plays several roles while simultaneously displaying a character arc throughout the musical. The Mount Union cast members provided five great performances through acting, unique scenery and excellent portrayal of this vocally demanding show. “Songs for a New World” was directed by Kevin P. Kern with musical direction by Ryan Bergeron. The shows were presented in-person to campus audiences in a limited capacity.
