A FRESH ALL-WOMAN+ LOOK

AT THE UNTOLD STORY OF

THE RADIUM GIRLS

Perpetual Sunshine & the Ghost Girls has words by Sara Cooper (The Memory Show) and music by Lynne Shankel (Bare, Allegiance, Breathe).  The live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with the writers.

Perpetual Sunshine & the Ghost Girls is an all-woman+ through-composed musical theatre piece about the capitalist exploitation of workers’ bodies and rights in the face of a national public health crisis. Featuring an original 1920s-2020s mashup score, the show is based on the true story of the women who worked in the factories and were knowingly poisoned by the United States Radium Corporation, and who fought back, changing United States labor laws forever.

Perpetual Sunshine & the Ghost Girls has been developed with The Beck Center for the Arts, Baldwin Wallace University and is a recipient of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s (NAMT) 2020 inaugural 15-minute musical competition.

TOM JONES

IS AN ELECTRIC GUITAR

IN A HARPSICHORD WORLD

The new musical Bastard Jones has a book by Marc Acito (Chasing Rainbows, Allegiance), music by Amy Engelhardt (The Bobs) and lyrics by Acito and EngelhardtThe live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with co-writer Amy Engelhardt.

Bastard Jones is a sexy, smart, rollicking new musical comedy that combines a bouncy pop score with period farce. When charming, low-born Tom makes the mistake of wooing Sophia Shepherd, daughter of the pompous Reverend Shepherd, a chain of secrets, schemings and multiple bed-hoppings are set in motion. Based on Henry Fielding’s 1749 Brit lit satire Tom Jones, this musical reimagines the young, irrepressible foundling Tom Jones as an electric guitar in a harpsichord world.

Bastard Jones has been developed by Milkin University and was produced Off-Broadway at The Cell.
