By Ryan Scott Oliver
Directed by Catie O'Donnell
Composer Ryan Scott Oliver wrote this cycle of dark, provocative songs in response to a series of photographs. Each song tells a story: A vampire's doomed love affair. A frustrated male nanny's woes. A religious icon. A vengeful ghost. A ruthless candidate for prom queen. And more.
With this unique collaboration, MTM will bring the idea of inspiration full circle, performed against the backdrop of photos inspired by the songs and taken by Madison based photographers. Fusing the worlds of photography and musical theatre, 35MM promises to be a theatrical experience unlike any other.

Seeking five singers (male and female) with excellent pop rock voices and storytelling capability. Ages and physical types are very flexible. Songs will be assigned depending on the singers we cast, so they may not necessarily match the genders/voice types on the cast recordings. All performers are compensated at the conclusion of the show's run. Compensation typically consists of a percentage of the box office gross.
