Under the Night

Book by Charlie Rhindress    Music and Lyrics by Dean Burry

“…the story flows with suspense to its surprising conclusion…a gripping tale and stirring songs.” – Sackville Tribune Post

This musical thriller tells the story of a young man obsessed with his mother’s diary and its tale of werewolves in 15th century Romania.  He eventually finds himself torn between living in the real world and the one of his imagination.  The music is a dynamic blend of Broadway style show tunes, contemporary pop songs and traditional gypsy styles. 

Cast Requirements: 6 Males/3 Females/small chorus/band

Premiered at Live Bait Theatre, August 1996

Listen to “The Hunt” from Under the Night. This track features the original cast and was recorded in one take, using just one microphone, with no mixing. So, the quality is not the best, but it gives a feel for the show.  Click here.
