BREAKING NEWS!! The LaMothe Gee Family is taking HAPPY IF HAPPY WHEN to NYC!
Happy If Happy When: A Family Musical has been accepted to appear in the line-up of the Tenth Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, located at The Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street, in New York City!!
Planet Connections is an eco-friendly, socially conscious theater festival. As part of our participation, we are adopting a charity to help — in our case, Mark DeGarmo Dance! Mark runs a program out of The Clemente that teaches dance to underserved communities in the NYC public school system. We are so delighted to support his work!
We will be giving three performances: July 26 at 5:30; July 27 at 6:15; and July 28 at 1:15.
Save the date! More information coming soon!
We did it! Our world premiere!
HAPPY IF — HAPPY WHEN
July 21, 22, 23, at the Fort Salem Theater
A fictional family of seven — played by our real family of seven — sets out to follow a dream of moving to the country. Tensions erupt as kids and parents push and pull one another along their way to a small farm, which has its own ideas of what it wants this family to be.
I wrote the book, the lyrics, and the melodies. Geoffrey wrote the orchestrations. Jordan, Jessica, Kyra, Kai, and Leif starred as young people not unlike themselves. We had a fabulous band in a charming theater!
Thanks so much to everyone who helped it happen!
