JACK, a moral musical tale
By Josh Franklin and Linda Weise
“JACK, a moral musical tale” is back!
Premiered last June 2017, the Colorado Springs Conservatory (CSC) team is bringing this original production back with revisions and additions to the story and music.
“I am thrilled with what Josh has done to the original piece. His incredible songwriting abilities have really elevated the score and flow of the story. Not to mention that I am simply humbled to work alongside him in bringing this story to life yet again, even better and with more great characters” says Linda Weise.
“Jack is going to be an awesome opportunity. An NYC based creative team are joined by three Broadway stars for this production. Will be absolutely thrilling to present this piece at the brand new ENT Center! The show was created as an anti-bullying platform and has expanded into something so special. It follows Jack, a young bully, who we find out is acting out because if some dysfunction in his family life. In a dream he is visited by the ‘Jacks’ from the tales we all know – Jack Horner, Jack Sprat, Jack be Nimble, Jack & Jill, Jack Frost, and of course a beanstalk with a Giant. It’s a coming of age story with a fairytale twist!” says Josh Franklin, co- writer and Director.
