Sumptuous New Macabre Musical Celebrates 1930s Rural Americana Playwright and Performer Self-Produces Dark Depression Era Comedy Musical Deep in the woods lies a place that few have seen--a mysterious place called "The Unknown", where long forgotten stories are revealed to those who travel through the wood. Based on Dante's Inferno and inspired by the work of Patrick McHale, Over the Garden Wall is a new dark comedic musical, directed, designed, and produced by Darrin Clayton Stewart, a performing newcomer to the Minneapolis Metro. Two wayward souls, brothers Wirt and Greg, travel parts unknown with the hope and the dread of returning home, lead by Beatrice, a bluebird with a menagerie of secrets towards a fate known only by the enigmatic Beast, the singing Lucifer of their inevitable twilight. Teetering between the lines of hope and despair, the brothers venture through the deep woods, much like Alice and her Wonderland, finding moments of whimsy and horror around every corner, and ultimately, discovering the meaning of brotherhood. Set in the 1930s, the music is inspired by Americana, Folk, and Opera of the era. Written, Designed, and Directed by: Darrin Clayton Stewart Score: Gifted by The Blasting Company, Arranged by Darrin Clayton Stewart Musical Direction and Piano by: Tony Omodt Lopez Starring: Wirt: Darrin Clayton Stewart Greg: Rachael Long Beatrice: Sydney Michael Narrator & Beast: Issac Bont Woodsman: Declan Lowthian Sara: Nicole Yang Queen of the Clouds: Kaira Miller Lorna: Aubrey Trecek Jason Funderberker: Zach Kagan Miss Langtree: Abby Britt Adelaide: Laila Bensaad-Johnson Auntie Whispers: Alexander Carney Wirt's Mother: Rachel Collins Chorus: Alison Christianson, Izzy Gehlen Piano: Tony Omodt-Lopez Ukulele: Andrew Collins Violin: Cressa Collins Over the Garden Wall creates the sense of longing for something you've never known--that dark nostalgia associated with feelings of love and wanderlust. Visually decadent, the atmosphere of the show is dressed in autumnal hues, from the set to the costumes, creating a damask, wistful and unique piece of musical theatre. Staged in Rarig's Nolte Experimental Theatre, Over the Garden Wall will run 5 performances before closing on April 23rd, with a final performance at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at potatoesandmolasses.brownpapertickets.com for $12.00 or at the door.
