The UND Department of Theatre Arts will present Songs for a New World, with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. You can view it from the comfort of your own home April 15-17 and 22-24.

At age 25, songwriter Jason Robert Brown pieced together 16 songs he had previously written to create a contemporary song cycle with a common theme: the moment of decision, the point at which you transition from old to new. Each song is a powerful stand-alone experience that takes us on a physical or emotional journey to a defining moment in life where suddenly everything changes. It’s about coming to a crossroad and surviving a new set of circumstances. Given the current state of our world, this musical seems more relevant today than ever as we navigate our way forward in a seemingly new world.

Under the direction of Chelsea Chimilar with musical direction by Brent C. Mauldin, UND’s talented theatre students face these profound moments of decision in Jason Robert Brown’s compelling score.

This production will be recorded for safe and convenient online viewing. Tickets will be $18 for an individual ticket and $25 for a group ticket. Group tickets allow the show to be viewed by members of your group or household. Tickets can be purchased through the UND Theatre’s online box office at burtness.und.edu. For questions please call (701) 777-2587.

The students, faculty and staff of UND Theatre Arts look forward to you joining us from the comfort of your own home.
