Coming of Age

PERFORMANCES: Jun 16 to Jun 24

Friday & Saturdays @ 8PM, Sundays @ 2PM

Music & lyrics by Jon Provan


Say goodbye to what you were...and take flight.

Coming of Age is a theatrical song cycle - a collection of short stories about growing up - written by Jon Provan. Each member of the dynamic ensemble cast - Girl, Boy, Young Woman, Young Man, Woman and Man - plays multiple roles, spanning the globe and the whole of human history.

They are rebels, warriors, dreamers and innocents, confronting life and leaping into the unknown. A rock-infused contemporary score, evocative lyrics and inventive staging join forces to chronicle the joys and fears of becoming yourself.

This inspiring new show was an Official Selection of the 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival, performing to sold out audiences at The Pershing Square Signature Center in NYC.
