We Foxes at San Diego State University in collaboration with The Old Globe is completely free and open to anyone who is interested in the future of musical theatre. You must reserve a seat prior to the event.
We Foxes is a Southern Gothic Musical Thriller written by Ryan Scott Oliver set in Missouri, 1945. It tells about Willa, a tough and unmannered orphan girl adopted by the Sheriff’s Wife, a calculating socialite, and the bloody domestic war that ensues between them when the girl uncovers the terrible secrets lurking beneath the floorboards. It is a story of intense human struggle, deliverance, and the great salvation found only through oneself.
RYAN SCOTT OLIVER is a 2011 Lucille Lortel Award Nominee, a 2009 Jonathan Larson Grant recipient and wrote the music and lyrics for 35mm: A Musical Exhibition, Mrs. Sharp (2008 Richard Rodgers Award Winner, at Playwrights Horizons starring Jane Krakowski, dir. by Michael Greif), Darling (featured on the “Bound for Broadway” episode of NBC’s The Apprentice), the song cycle Out of My Head, Quit India (commissioned by UCLA), the music for Angus Oblong’s The Debbies, a commission for Disney Theatricals, The Frog Prince Continued (commissioned by Chicago’s Emerald City Theatre) and Jasper in Deadland (commissioned by the Pasadena Musical Theatre Program). Jasper in Deadland recently opened Off-Broadway to a rave review in The NY Times.

It's been FIVE years since we premiered 'ZANNA, DON'T!' for San Diego audiences and to this day I am so thankful and blessed for that opportunity.
I met some incredible people and got to share a story that touched the lives of so many.
So much has happened since that show and I look forward to the future!
I thought I'd re-share a memorable moment from the show. When we all met at 5 AM to sing and perform on a local news station. Not all of our performances made it into this compilation clip that they posted, but it's still so funny to watch.

When CB's dog dies, he begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of the group's bullying, offers CB peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
