Event

Abigail the salem witch trials / the rock opera
* A MUSICAL * THEATRICAL * CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE *
A rock opera based during the Salem witch trials period and centered around Abigail Williams, a young girl stuck in Puritanical times who longs for something more. Abigail and her family sing and dance in the privacy of their home even though discovery of their behavior would ensure prosecution and punishment from the community and the church. To Abigail, this risk was worth the secrecy because the LOVE around her at home was the world to her.

*****************************

Buzz Productions, with Skycastle Music and Lunar Eclipse Records has been doing rock and roll opera's since 1998.

We ran our first big LIVE run of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at The DNA Lounge for a three month run. We followed that up in 1999, by staging TOMMY at the DNA for a two month run.

In 2000 we put on THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW in several venues throughout the two and a half month run to crowds of hundreds. For the next two years we performed JCSS during the Christmas months at The Paradise Lounge and StudioZ.

During this time we worked on a new type of production, PINK FLOYD THE WALL, where we teamed with Green Mill Filmworks and John Jansen who did original film work which played along with the performance. We did THE WALL in 2002 at the StudioZ space to sold out crowds for two months.

For many years we would revive our JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR winter shows. We all took a break for several years to work on our first original, Abigail the salem witch trials. We did a successful 12 show run at Temple nightclub in San Francisco in 2010.

In August 2011, we had an amazing 6 show run at Lightrail Studios with a newer and energized cast. What amazing energy we were able to present to the hundreds that were witness! Thank you to all who came out!

We will have this one last show in 2011 to celebrate Daniel Knop and Michael Xavier's Birthdays. Come out and party with us and the witches.

Bless our gift, Abigail
