Both productions performed to SOLD-OUT audiences and rave reviews. These developmental productions have paved the way to the upcoming professional-level production being planned for Christmas of 2017.

SHOWS IN DEVELOPMENT
Working title: THUMBELINA
Based on Hans Christian Andersen‘s timeless fairy tale, Thumbelina is a brand new musical adaptation that puts an exciting and modern spin on the story similar to the style of Disney’s Tangled and Frozen. Erik Przytulski‘s reimagining of the adventure has had two developmental productions and is heading toward another workshop in late 2017. One of the songs from the show, “BIGGER THAN MY DREAMS”, has been featured and performed on several occasions and venues including Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles, CA and the famous Feinsteins 54 Below in Manhattan, NYC.
