BASED ON THE CLASSIC NOVEL BY

HELEN HUNT JACKSON

Donde la Tierra Toca el Cielo - from RAMONA
00:00 / 00:00
I'll Take You There - from RAMONA
00:00 / 00:00

Based on the classic novel by Helen Hunt Jackson, Ramona tells the story of an orphan girl growing up on a Mexican hacienda in Southern California in the 1850s. She falls in love with a Native American ranchero, and together they journey across the new U.S. state in search of a place to call home. With a blend of American, Native American and Mexican musical styles, Ramona is an epic love story set during one of the most violent, tumultuous times in American history.

Ramona has been developed with the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop, KHN Center for the Arts, Brush Creek Foundation,  was featured in New York Theatre Barn’s New Works Series before the Coronavirus pandemic, and will be further developed at Yaddo later this year. Ramona is produced in association with John Albert Harris.

CHOREOGRAPHY BY JESSICA JANCUSKA

With book, music and lyrics by Douglas Waterbury-Tieman (SeaWife), Johnny and the Devil’s Box is a new musical with one foot in the Georgia mountains and one foot in the Grand Ole Opry. The original musical follows Johnny Baker, the best fiddler that's ever been, until his boasting attracts the attention of another fiddler—the Devil himself—who shows up with a plan for Johnny’s destruction. With fame, fortune and love tempting him at every turn, Johnny must find his true path and the strength to win a battle of the bows with the highest possible stakes. Johnny and the Devil’s Box proclaims the immense power of music to heal broken communities when we put aside our pride and join hands in jubilant song and dance. The show's choreographer is Jennifer Jancuska (Hamilton).

Johnny and the Devil’s Box has been developed in the Johnny Mercer Writers’ Colony at Goodspeed Musicals, The Drama League's Rough Draft Residency, Belmont University Musical Theatre Program, s the recipient of a Frank Young Fund’s Writers Retreat Grant with Goodspeed Musicals, and was featured in New York Theatre Barn’s New Works Series before the Coronavirus pandemic.
