Last year I managed to take part in Short + Sweet Musical & Theatre. Initially I was planning to participate again as performer in S+S Musical & try directing in S+S Theatre, but due to my commitment to Dama Orchestra's Empress Wu. I still hope to at least try directing next year. In the mean time, I am pleased that my collaboration with wifey has resulted in our participation in this year's S+S Musical as lyricists & composers instead:)
Basically it's a very simple story of a family awaiting the return of the son from his studies abroad, and the surprise they got when the son comes home looking a little different. Probably just like me when I returned home from my studies with a blonde hair. Only thing is, the family in the musical are chinese vampires.
We were give a preview of how the songs would sound like last Monday and it was really hilarious! It also feels great to see your writing come to life. The sad part is I won't be able to see the final product live as Empress Wu starts its run a day after S+S Musical begins.
