“And every brave thing you do turns you into someone new, ’til you find the real you!” – The Quest
Sammy plays “Quest,” a role-playing game, every night with Rosie, Frankie and Taylor. One night, instead of quests within the game, Taylor gives the other three real-life quests. This launches all four of them on a journey to leave their safe fantasy world and confront their greatest fears – and along the way to learn about themselves and the value of friendship. The Quest is a show that knows we all have what it takes to be brave – we just need a little push sometimes.
“I have had the great pleasure of working on this new musical as a director and dramaturg since the beginning of 2021. So far, the show has had two small workshop readings and now it is time for a fully staged developmental production. I am so very excited about the potential of this piece.
The central themes of self-discovery and the value of friendship are ones many of us can relate to and this musical reminds us that being brave and facing our fears can often lead to astonishing things.
Having the opportunity to further develop the piece with the Studio Ensemble at the Canadian College of Performing Arts is absolutely thrilling.” – Stephanie Graham, director
