After two years of development,
we are proud to introduce Wand, The Musical. A brilliant romantic comedy, written in the style of a large Broadway production, this musical is fully orchestrated with dance numbers, songs, and a modern
twist of magic.
draw the entire cast and audience into the magic of show
business. We meet "The Great Macardi" just as his star is
rising to professional levels, as his assistants Alex and Angel help him
navigate the waters of fame under the guidance of his agent, Drake.
Drake introduces them to a casino booking agent named Kadi
and her trusted ally Taylor, and sparks begin to fly - both romantically and
professionally. As the magic continues to improve, revelations bring new
feelings to light, driving some couples closer while forcing others apart.
When a mysterious stranger reveals more truths, who will choose
love, and who will choose fame? Can even a magician find a balance
between romance and heartbreak?
The creator, Cyrus Albertson,
has a rare mix of talents. As
professional magician and musician, he has been a part of over 80 Broadway musical
performances, conducting & playing in the pit. In addition, he has written and orchestrated numerous
musical pieces for choirs, bands, and ensembles as well as creating musical
scores for movies.
We are fortunate to have Brad
Henderson, magician & nationally renowned magic consultant collaborating on
the magic for this musical. Mr. Henderson performs magic all over the world and has designed and created
illusions for several movies, plays, performers and events.
Our very first production will
be choreographed by William (Bill) Piner.
Mr. Piner, a graduate of Butler University’s prestigious dance program,
enjoyed a magnificent career in musical theatre and is currently the director
of one of the largest classical ballet schools in the country.
This musical has everything you
would want and expect in a Broadway musical, as well as the interest of
several producers. We are looking for
monetary help to launch this on the track to make it all the way to
Broadway. In order to get there, one of
our first steps is to hire vocalists and musicians as well as pay for studio time to
record a demo CD. The music is
orchestrated for a full pit (30+) musicians, but can also be performed in a
black box with as few as 8 musicians. We
hope to exceed our fundraising goal so that we can get as close to a full
orchestra as possible and also cover additional costs we will have for printing
If you have ever been involved
with anything Cyrus does, you have experienced his incredible talent and will
be blown away by Wand. Please consider a contribution (large or
small) so that soon you will be able to experience this musical as it was
intended – on Broadway!
