About this project

Quintessence…The Musical!
A Spiritual Adventure
By Clifford D. Robinson

Story in Two Sentences:

Three teenage girls, who are best of friends have a dream, and subsequently meet nine unforgettable Characters. They meet the Soul, and six of its manifestations, as well as the spirit, and the Body.

Story Synopsis:

“Quintessence…The Musical,” is an allegory about a day in the life of three teenage girls. A very special day. A day which will change their lives, and will warm your heart, forever. The Play/Film “Opens”, at the State of Michigan’s Quartet Competition for full term scholarships to the Interlochen Arts Academy. The last quartet of the day is being introduced Carrie, Maiah, Consuelo, and Melvin. Upon completion of their fantastic performance, they win the competition! To celebrate, the girls decide to meet at their ‘Secret Place’ (a spot at a neighborhood Park). While there, they toast to winning the Scholarships, and begin to reminisce. As they talk, Carrie starts to think about some of her problems and tribulations at home, and becomes depressed. The depression then spreads like wildfire to Consuelo and Maiah. To the point that all three girls are “sitting on a stump crying their eyes out.” GOOD GRIEF!

Fortunately, Maiah remembers her mother saying, “she prays and meditates when she gets depressed.” So the three begin to pray and meditate. While concentrating, sitting perfectly still and quiet…they fall asleep. While sleeping, the three have a “Dream”. A dream so real…Somehow, they are thrust to another level. They have reached Quintessence (Kwin-tes-sns). 2) the fifth element, “above” Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. The ethereal. This is where our play/film takes place. And where their story, is told. It is here, where the three girls meet nine unforgettable characters. All of them unique, and in their own way prolific. In that they represent the very essence of life, itself! The girls meet Flame (The Soul), and six manifestations of the Soul (Talent, Creativity, Fun,
Mr. Evil, The Keeper, and I. M. Thought). They also meet “Dee Body”, and
“The spirit”. Each of them are meaningful, universal. And they all are Quintessence. 1) “anything in its purest and most concentrated form”. The conversations between these nine Characters and the three girls, are both thought provoking, and uplifting. Please note, God’s Word is carefully intertwined into their conversations. And, it is the “backbone” for this Teaching Ministry. While at the same time, being completely entertaining and fun.

There is exciting Singing and Dancing throughout. The Score is a mixed genre of Pop, Jazz, R & B, Hip Hop, New Gospel, and a little Classical. Of which, there are seven big Production numbers.
