“So Proudly We Hailed”

a musical honoring Veterans in their own words

based on true stories of Veterans

Here’s a look at the stage show, including some excerpts:

We have paired Veterans with a mentor and a creative team including a composer, librettist, and book writer to transform episodes in their lives into captivating, unforgettable short musicals.   

 

Some of the episodes are funny.  Some are sentimental, or nostalgic, or terrifying, processing mental trauma or reintegration into society…but each is important and they are each of them unflinchingly told: we honor the Veteran’s viewpoint.  One story, for instance, tells the story of a survivor of Military Sexual Trauma (she was raped by her superior officers, then drummed out of the military before she could file a report); another focuses on the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder of a guy who literally digs for cover whenever he hears an engine backfire, or a firework.

Their country called them.  And they answered.

They gave their allegiance.  Now they’re giving us their stories.  Powerful, insightful, sometimes frightening, sometimes scary.  But always inspiring.

This project includes many 10-15-minute one-person musicals. So you can design your own program, to suit your audience, cast, and venue.

1 to 4 performers.

Any length from 15-minutes to a full evening. Available for licensing beginning summer of 2022. 

Here are four excerpts for your perusal.
