Description

Homefront

Book by Craig Slaight

Music and lyrics by Creighton Irons

Directed by Domenique Lozano

Musical direction by Jane Erwin Hammett

Choreography by Christine Mattison

In this passionate and powerful new musical, Emma Kolmeier and her two young siblings flee from Germany to escape the war in Europe, leaving everything they know far behind them. The family settles in southern Illinois, where they make new friends—and begin to confront harsh persecution as America enters the war against Germany.

Set against the backdrop of a tumultuous and riveting moment in history, Homefront tells the story of remarkable young people courageously struggling to come of age in a world rocked by conflict. As they experience the first twinges of romance and dream of the future, their lives are transformed in astonishing ways, forever redefining their understanding of home.

This world premiere production of a brand-new, completely original musical launches a new phase in the Young Conservatory’s ongoing commitment to the development of theatrical works created especially for young people.
