Award-winning songwriters, Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen’s Fugitive Songs is a 19-song journey across America. This innovative show, conceived as half-musical/half-hootenanny, spotlights people on the run: a disgruntled Subway sandwich employee, a jilted ex-cheerleader, a pair of Patty Hearst fanatics, a stoner forced to rob a convenience store against his will, and many others. Blending traditional folk music with contemporary pop and gospel, Fugitive Songs offers a new sound for a restless America. This eclectic score delivers poignant and thought-provoking stories that capture each character’s “reasons to run.”
Springfield Contemporary Theatre is excited to present the Southwest Missouri premiere of this great work by MSU alumnus Nathan Tysen. Nathan’s work as a lyricist has been heard on stages around the world including in the Broadway musicals Tuck Everlasting and Amélie, on television’s Sesame Street and The Electric Company as well as in the new digital musical series A Killer Party.
Directed by Rick Dines and music directed by Alex Huff, Fugitive Songs will be SCT’s first virtual MainStage production. This production stars Lavelle Johnston, Mary Kim, Joey Myers, Andrew Phinney, Erin Scheibe and Darby Vincent and will be filmed and edited by Tom Baker from Bravo Creative, LLC.
