Musicals - JahnnaNMalcolm


Take a look at our musicals. Our latest, a musical adaptation of Barbara Robinson's classic Christmas story The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, will premiere this November 2016 at Children's Theatre of Charlotte, NC. All of them have enjoyed multiple productions across the United States and Canada. Here's a testimonial from our dear friend Sandy Ernst:

"Regarding the fabulous them that are — Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner...

We produced CHAPS! to enormous success! Sold out the entire run, and if it had not been in a subscription series, we could have extended that show for months!

I was sold — we immediately asked Malcolm and Jahnna to propose another show.

THEY CAME FROM WAY OUT THERE was a riot! Hilarious! So original! Our cabaret space had produced many wonderful 'juke box' musicals – but this was different…original music and a very funny plot!

Now I had audiences asking what was next from this team. So…we asked them to write shows just for us.

DOGPARK THE MUSICAL was born! Who doesn't love dogs! Or at least know a dog lover… Our subscription audience lapped it up! And we added a whole new world of canine loving fans. Doggone funny, great original music, and a plot to boot!

Beecham and Hillgartner on a roll!

HOLMES AND WATSON, A MUSICAL MYSTERY was up next… OK — so, Sherlock Holmes, Watson, original music, a set in Baker Street, and a real mystery! Can't beat that! (and it made our prop master SO happy!)"
