The PeaceMaker Project centers on the professional production of a “new” work for musical theater: PeaceMaker: The Dreams of Humanity’s Child. This musical, this opera, this performance piece, is designed to be entertaining and engaging while delivering a very powerful message: that we need to care for the EarthMother and all our relations, that each of us can be a peace maker. Therefore, the goal of the Peacemaker Project is to deliver that message to as wide and diverse and audience as possible.\ To accomplish this goal, we will recruit professional collaborators of like mind, body and spirit: musicians, actors, singers, dancers, directors, managers, designers, technicians. We will provide resources for collaborators to facilitate their success: musical scores, demo orchestrations, production notes, individual and group coaching, technical support. We will establish a “doable” schedule for busy professionals, a schedule that requires a minimum of people being in the same place, at the same time, doing the same thing. We will do this by rightly expecting that professionals, given proper resources and support, will come to a rehearsal situation fully prepared.
Thus, we believe that such a group can and will be able to bring the individual pieces together in a very short time…in fact, in four days for phase one of our project.
We will articulate a business plan appropriate to a “non-profit” model and, at the same time, designed to generate sufficient revenues to provide appropriate and “fair-market value” compensation for professional participants. In other words, we think pros should be paid for their work and we intend to our best to see that this happens. Simply put…we hope to generate enough revenues from the sale of tickets and other fund-raising activities to cover production expenses and still leave enough resources to compensate professional participants in a “fair-market value” way as well as support the larger goals of the Peaceful Educator Foundation. How exactly this will be determined has not been determined, yet…however, the spirit of our intention is fairness and the details will be clearly articulated and understood among and between participants before commitments are required.

Vincent, a one-man play in two acts. This intimate play about the tortured genius, Vincent van Gogh, comes directly from the hundreds of letters between Vincent and his brother, Theo. Of course, no such production would be complete without the artwork itself, which is beautifully displayed throughout the performance. The result is a magnificent theatrical experience not to be missed.
“The actor doesn’t have the stage to himself. He plays against the celebrated artist’s brilliant paintings projected on [a] large screen.” —Variety
