“Chasing Ghosts” – the full episode
After months of planning…after all the post-production…after all the sneak peeks … New Musicals Inc. is finally launching the first episode of SO PROUDLY WE HAILED, the musical webseries honoring veterans in their own words.
“Chasing Ghosts” is the first full episode in the webseries SO PROUDLY WE HAILED. It is based on the Iraq War memoir, An Angel From Hell, by Ryan Conklin; with music by Ron Barnett and lyrics by Christine Croyden; featuring Troy Armond Barboza.
For this webseries, New Musicals Inc. has paired veteran honorees with an artistic team comprised of a composer, lyricist, director, and dramaturg, and then helped to shape their story into a short musical retelling in a digital platform.
This project is hosted by New Musicals Inc. This activity is supported in part by generous grants from:
the Helen and Jose Colton Foundation
the Peter Glenville Foundation
the Anonymous Fund (Marin County)
the California Arts Council, a state agency.
To see an interview with veteran Ryan Conklin; an interview with performer Troy Armand Barboza, to learn more about the project, and to view future episodes as they are released, visit www.nmi.org/veterans
