Songs for a New World

October 29 - Nov 13, 2022

It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice... or take a stand... or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.

Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams... and a soulless marriage.


Our aim is to fill all roles with the incredible talent we know is out there and has been waiting to revisit this seminal work. All races, identities, genders and body types are encouraged to audition. SCP actively works to foster and advance an anti-racist, equitable and inclusive environment in our programs and on our team. A team which works to support and encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ talent who have historically been marginalized and victimized in our field and our society. You must have no conflicts during tech week. First-round auditions close May 20.
