About

Melina is a steampunk musical tragedy. A story of love, loss and the fact that as much as we would like to, we can't change the past. Set in a fictional steampunk setting, Melina is Shakespeare meets Greek Tragedy sprinkled with a fun dose of Jules Verne! Help take this production to the next level by funding the demo album that will be sent to festivals and competitions and make this musical a staple of the community theatre, university theatre and high school theatre scene!

Synopsis: In the fictional steampunk town of New Comen, Jacob is the highly esteemed heir to the "throne" who is in love with a lower-class girl named Mara. Mara, is an aspiring vocalist that has gained the favor of the town despite her status. Their love is one of fairy tales until Melina enters the scene. Melina sweetly wins Jacob's attention and he ends up falling for her and leaving Mara. Mara is heartbroken over losing her first love until she meets Jeremiah, an artistic manager who promises her the world. However, Melina's affection for Jacob begin to wane, and she ends up leaving him the day Mara weds Jeremiah. Melina eventually returns having given birth to Jacob's daughter. Disgraced and hoping to restore his place at his noble family's estate, life takes unexpected twists as the fate of Jacob's daughter, a talented inventor, and Mara's son, a talented vocalist himself, become intertwined. With gadgets, gizmos, and gears: a musical tragedy is rising from the steam.
