BEST FOOT FORWARD!
El Mejor Pie Adelante!
"Sawyer McNally really wants to win the “Dance Starz” crown, but the competition is fierce, and “Lil G” Gonzalez has all the right moves. When a storm forces the two dancers from different walks of life to get to know one another, Sawyer learns that there are more important things in life than winning."
In 2019, I had the great privilege of composing, orchestrating, and music directing for Best Foot Forward!, an original bilingual musical with book & lyrics by Lojo Simon. The show was commissioned for Creede Repertory Theatre's Headwaters New Play Festival, and is currently touring the midwestern United States through the theatre's Young Audience Outreach Tour program, and is projected to reach approximately 38,000 children.
