NYMF AND PRISON DANCER LIVE, LLC PRESENT: PRISON DANCER, THE MUSICAL

Genre: Musical
Book by ROMEO CANDIDO and CARMEN DE JESUS Music & Lyrics by ROMEO CANDIDO Directed by JENN RAPP

 

The lives of eight Filipino maximum-security prisoners are changed forever when a video of their
dance-based rehabilitation program becomes a viral Internet sensation on YouTube. As the dark
prison suddenly finds itself in the worldwide spotlight, these hardcore criminals are given a second
chance to find love and happiness in the most challenging circumstances. A modern inspired-by-a-
true-story about how fears can hold us captive – and dreams can set us free to dance!
