For the last twenty-five years, Bryan, Jack and band have continued to build on and refine the show as a labor of love. That labor has produced something truly remarkable – a finished work of art that captivates everyone who sees and hears it.
"Pleasant Grove,” with its music and lyrics written by Bay of Pigs
and directed by Amelia Rose Moore is based on the tragic and true events described above. This unique show is a beautiful, delicate, gritty, emotive and at times raw and explosive Rock Opera. It tackles, head-on, intense themes such as mental illness, drug use and suicide, an over-bearing conservative community, family relationships strained to the breaking point and the seemingly impossible road to a renewed hope and healing. The production demands audiences look inward and reach outward as they experience this epic story.
Added to the team are a capable series of business operators, a world-class Broadway entertainment attorney, a Tony award winning producer, and an amazing cast and crew - all sharing a common vision. The Show is truly going on!Timeline and Upcoming Events:
