SMTD@UMMA Performance: A Night of Myths & Hymns

There will be two seatings for this performance at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Seating is limited and will be first come, first served.

This program explores belief during times of crisis within a newly conceived narrative. Runyonland Productions rethinks Adam Guettel’s song cycle Myths & Hymns with a fresh cast of characters. Students in SMTD’s celebrated Musical Theater program, guided by Broadway director Geoff Packard with Broadway music director Jason DeBord leading an expanded instrumental arrangement, join art historians and leaders from three world religions to draw out a 21st-century moral of understanding and acceptance.

The SMTD@UMMA performance series is generously supported by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund and the Greg Hodes and Heidi Hertel Hodes—Partners in the Arts Endowment Fund.
