'Emerald' an Irish American musical

Emerald by Chris Burgess and Denise Wright

Principals : 4m, 4f   Support : 4m, 5f   Winner : S&S Award 2012
Grace abandons her life in Manhattan and moves to the secluded seaside town of Ennismuck in the West of Ireland. However, as soon as she arrives she clashes with a mining corporation buying up properties and decimating the land. Grace campaigns to save Ennismuck, and starts a prickly relationship with truculent local artist, Mulcahy. Both ventures prove to be perilous. But Grace manages to topple the mining company's monopoly, and, eventually, thaw Mulcahy’s frozen heart. By the end of the story she has arrived at a place she can truly call home. ‘Emerald’ is about the search for home. An ambitious large-scale show, it has an ensemble that could consist of an entire Irish village. It is set in the present day, but in the backwaters of Ireland, so although it is contemporary it has strong links with an ancient past. The Irish-American score is lyrical and passionately rhythmic.

Musical Theatre: 'The White Rose' the story of Sophie Scholl

The White Rose by Craig Christie and Andrew Paterson

'The White Rose' is based on the true story of a group of students at Munich University in 1942 who formed a resistance movement to Hitler's regime. It traces the story of Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans, and his friends as they despair of the increasingly totalitarian lives being forced onto the German nation. 'The White Rose' is a musical production both intimate and epic in its portrayal of the story and characters involved, and, though drawn from the pages of history, it is as relevant today as it was when it originally unfolded during the dark days of war. NOTE: a play version of this is also available.
