Crossover: A New Pop Musical

Details

Categories: Film, Music, Theater

Dates: October 1, 2021 - October 2, 2021

Run Time: 120 mins

Venue: Friends Select School, THE INTERNET (Digital Shows)

Overview

Meet Crossover, the newest singing competition to hit the airwaves with a streaming-era twist: the competing artists must prove that they’re adept at both writing and performing across different genres in order to claim the title of Crossover Champion. When four women tie in the regional competition, they reluctantly opt to compete on the national broadcast as a group: Four-Way Tie. As they navigate the ups and downs of sudden fame, they learn more about themselves and each other than they ever thought possible. Crossover’s megamix-style score, featuring influences from dance pop, country, R&B, and rap, reinforces the show’s message: love between women, romantic or otherwise, is something to sing about.

Crossover: A New Pop Musical has an original book and score written by Danielle E. Moore and is directed by Amanda Pasquini. The show is produced by Chelsea Cylinder and Danielle E. Moore. It is presented by Green Light Group Productions in partnership with the William Way Community Center and Friends Select School.

Crossover: A New Pop Musical will be screened as a film at a live, interactive outdoor rooftop movie night with snacks and drinks at the following times:

Friday, October 1st at 7:30pm
Saturday, October 2nd at 7:30pm

The show will also be streaming digitally at those times for those who are unable to come in person.

Tickets to the live event will be sold through FringeArts’ website and at the door. Tickets to the digital stream will be sold solely through the FringeArts box office. A link to the performance will be sent with each ticket purchase.

Tickets to the movie screening are $15.00 and $10.00 for industry members. Tickets to the digital stream are $10.00. Press comps are available, and Fringe Card rates will be accepted.

Please note that anyone who attends the in-person event must be fully vaccinated and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination.
