The Music

Music is a huge part of our productions. It brings life to our characters, and sets the mood for the story.

 

For The Tortoise & The Hare, first a rough script was written. Then musicians were recruited. Some returning from our first production, others new to our troupe. Each song composer was paired with a character and was asked to create a song for that character.

 

In order in appearance, our songs are…
