THE GOAL

Our creative team is working towards raising $2,000 to help produce the world premiere of CHOICES: A New Rock Musical. The money we are raising will help fund the costs associated with mounting this production off-Broadway at the Bessie Schonberg Theater in June. This production will be our New York and off-Broadway debut! Your donation will help us achieve our dream of seeing CHOICES put up in front of a live audience, and help support a whole group of artists associated with the show.

Book & Lyrics by DEREK P. HASSLER

HISTORY

CHOICES was originally conceived at the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at New York University in New York, New York in February 2012 as a self contained 10 minute piece. Since then, the writers have spent countless hours transforming the musical into a slightly larger piece without the time limit. In March 2012 a demo recording was produced with vocals by Landon Braverman and Jeremy Greenbaum. In April, the piece was selected as part of the West Village Music Theatre Festival.
