Jasper in Deadland

October 27–November 12, 2017

An exhilarating new rock musical based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice


17-year-old Jasper is struggling to make sense of his life. He's failing classes, was kicked off the swim team, and his family life is rough. When his best friend Agnes suddenly disappears, he discovers that she's been taken to the mysterious underworld of Deadland. He sets off on a mythological escapade to bring her back. Will he make it through this treacherous world filled with demons, gods, and monsters in time to bring Agnes back from the dead? Or will he be doomed to stay in Deadland forever? Loosely based on the myth Orpheus & Eurydice, Jasper in Deadland is a new musical featuring a thrilling pop-rock score composed by Ryan Scott Oliver.
