Trumpets returns with brand-new musical


After a three-year hiatus, Trumpets is back on the theater scene with “The Bluebird,” a brand-new musical about the magical adventures of two children and their quest for real happiness, adapted from the play “The Blue Bird” by Belgian playwright, Maurice Maeterlinck. The musical will open in September 2013.

Trumpets, the first Asian professional gospel theater group, is known for wholesome family entertainment musicals such as “First Name,” “Fables and Parables,” “N.O.A.H.,” “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Joseph the Dreamer” and “The Little Mermaid.”

Unlike other English theater companies who get the performing rights of Broadway/West End materials, Trumpets dedicated the past three years to creating the new musical, with book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo and music by Rony Fortich.

“The Bluebird” promises to deliver the elements that audiences love in a family musical: a delightful story, colorful characters, beautiful music, fantastic production design, brilliant staging, hearty laughs, touching moments and a valuable lesson.
