April 25, 2013
On this week's True Brit!, host Simon Husbands will be welcoming Blake Thomas - acclaimed musician and creator of the new radio themed musical, STAY TUNED - and we'll be giving away tickets for you to enjoy! Osseo's Yellow Tree Theatre is thrilled to host the world premiere of Stay Tuned, featuring an original score by Blake and book by core YTT artists Mary Fox and Andy Frye! In the show, Stay Tuned follows Rusty, Scotty & Emma, the heart and soul of The Emerald Coffee Radio Hour. As the fictitious show celebrates its 60th anniversary its legendary host, Bob, passes away leaving his son, Gordon, holding the reigns. The old and the new collide head-on when Gordon hires pop-media-personality, Ashabell Baker, to take over as host. Rusty and the crew struggle as they try to find balance between preserving tradition and moving toward the future in this touching, often hysterical, new musical.
Join Blake and Simon on Friday night at midnight to learn more about composing for the stage show, Blake and much more about thespians!
