What’s a story without words? What’s a show without song? What about a show that’s all song?

That’s exactly the most unique component of Theatre NDSU’s latest production, “Songs for a New World.”

“Songs for a New World,” written by Jason Robert Brown, is a unique type of show. The entire production is composed entirely of songs. The pattern, known as a song-cycle, introduces characters and tells its story through music.

“Songs for a New World” communicates the story of how one moment in a person’s life can change everything, from the woman who married for money, to a soldier shot in the American Revolution.

Each of the characters is confronted with different circumstances, and shares their hope to one day reach a new and better world.

Theatre NDSU’s performance of “Songs for a New World” runs at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23-25 and March 1-4 in the Walsh Studio Theatre at Askanase Auditorium.

Tickets are free for NDSU students with their ID and are available through the NDSU Division of Performing Arts box office by calling (701) 231-7969.
