SPELLBOUND-A MUSICAL ADVENTURE

Genre: Classical, Comedy, Drama, Musical
Written by Paul J. Deakin & Christian De Gre, Directed by Nancy Robillard

 

Told through the eyes of a young and naïve, but talented village girl,Spellbound presents the pursuit of truth and inner courage, set in a world of wizards, witches, and warlocks. After the massacre of her village, Herianne embarks on a journey through a mystical land to rescue her family and fulfill her life-long ambition to become a Grand Wizard. Accompanied by her mentor and three “Teachers of the Scrolls,” Herianne must overcome the evil that enshrouds the land of Dragnor and confront the wickedness that seeks to devour her innate power. With time and a conspiring foe against her, Herianne is forced to choose relationships wisely as she completes her passage from adolescence to womanhood. In a final battle of good versus evil, events beyond her control make it clear to Herianne that great reward often comes at great sacrifice.

Spellbound addresses issues of equality, relationships, terrorism, greed, dictatorship, power, love and the importance of friendship and family. Metaphors for deceit, trust, poverty, wealth, choice and the idea of being isolated from the rest of the world are all vehicles used to highlight just some of the many trials of life in the world in which we live. And that all-important question to which many of us seek the answer, the forever wonderment of ‘Why?’ is presented... along with some possible answers from an alternative point of view!
