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.

In England the Queen spoke the word of God, this was understood by all. A young eleven year old named Abigail Williams was taught that she would not be allowed to go to heaven, but would have to repent for her entire life. In public Abigail would conduct herself as Puritan society would have her act. Standing behind her parents, only speaking when spoken too and to never ever dance or sing.
In the privacy of the Williams house was LOVE! Abigail would dance in circles for hours, she and her parents would sing happy songs late into the nights. The shades would be pulled down low, so none could see the happenings inside. If anyone would see or hear these activities, the community would punish the Williams family. For Abigail, the risk was worth the secrecy because the LOVE around her at home was the world to her. This was her place of total freedom. ************************************************************ 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.
