Change: A New Play by Michael Slade
The Human Race Theatre Company
Sometimes societal change happens slowly. Other times a single, monumental episode (either tragic
or heroic) can cause a huge change in the way we, as Americans, see ourselves and our world. This
three-character play will explore the ways our lives as Americans were forever altered by three
iconic moments in time: the assassination of John F. Kennedy; the events of 9/11; and the election of
the first African- American president, Barack Obama. CHANGE will not only entertain and inform,
but will be a great discussion starter.

Edgar Allan Poe’s Nevermore: A New Musical
Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This imaginative musical uses
Poe’s poetry and short stories as its base and his shifting obsessions with the women in his life as its
catalyst. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, Nevermore breathes new life into Poe’s work and
explores a twisted true-life tale that is as bizarre as his classic stories of the macabre. Directed by
Muse Machine’s Director for Secondary Education David Brush, join us for this thrilling new
musical in an edition designed exclusively for Muse audiences. Nevermore is presented through a
special arrangement from Theatrical Rights Worldwide and creators Mark Connor and Grace

The Magic of Movies
A dynamic, interactive presentation, The Magic of Movies illustrates how diverse art forms come
together to create the illusion of motion pictures. The multi-media experience is hosted by David
Sherman, the Muse alum and film graduate who created recent promotional videos for Muse and
the onstage movies seen in Muse Machine’s Singin’ in the Rain. Using a large screen, projections of
films from early silent experiments through current blockbusters and plenty of student
participation, The Magic of Movies will convey concepts including cinematography, special effects,
music, editing and how all of these shape the way we experience one of the most popular art forms
of all: the movies.
