KING OF POPS: A POST APOCALYPTIC MUSICAL!
January 22, 2015
This week at Tunewelders we’ve been humming songs about popsicles and the American Dream. That is because we’ve been hard at work with our friends from Dad’s Garage Theater and ensemble member Mike Schatz on the upcoming world premiere, King of Pops: A Post Apocalyptic Musical!, which opens April 24th 2015 at 7 Stages Theater in Atlanta’s Little 5 Points. As we follow the fictional journey of one of Atlanta’s favorite iconic figures, the King of Pops - into a dark world of death, destruction and delicious popsicles, the original musical numbers for the show will offer a unique mix of Americana Folk and Broadway Orchestration. Joining Schatz in production of the musical are Tunewelder’s Ben Holst (musical co-writer and Producer) and Jason Shannon (Arranging & Orchestration).
