The Chosen One
With a hummable pop-rock score that pays homage to classic musical theatre, The Chosen One follows a trio of queer high schoolers who have created a spellbinding fantasy world to conjure what they’re missing in their own lives. This hilarious, heart-warming, and heart-wrenching coming of age story reminds us that the people we love are the most magical things in the world.

The Romeo & Juliet Project
Delayed due to Covid-19

Through an intricate weaving of Benatar and Giraldo's riveting rock anthems, inspired ballads, and new songs - an ethnically diverse, multi-cultural cast will explore how love and equality battle for survival in times of great transformation.
