THE PELICAN @ NAMT
The 34th Annual National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT) Festival returned to Off-Broadway's New World Stages, with eight new musicals on October 20th and 21st. A committee consisting of 17 theatre professionals selected this year's offerings from 480 submissions, the largest submission pool in the festival's history.
This year's NAMT Festival included The Pelican with book and lyrics by Will Lacker and music and lyrics by Dylan Glatthorn.
The Pelican takes place in The Pelican Bar, one of the final hold outs of a coastal Florida town that has been devastated by climate change. As a serious hurricane threatens to drown the town once and for all, the colorful cast of residents are forced to choose between the safety of the nearby Corporate City, or risking the storm to keep their home alive.
