This musical spectacular marks the the 5th iteration of UCSB's College of Creative Studies Musical Project. Prince Charles Brave, heir to throne of Even Greater Britain, has no idea how to be a king. Fate would have it, then, that his mother, the Goddess Queen, has just announced she will be ascending to the heavens - or going to Fiji, it's a bit unclear. Either way, whether he likes it or not, Charles is suddenly going to have to deal with an island nation with zero natural resources and a pro-democracy royal counselor who wants to overthrow the monarchy. Luckily, Charles will have help from his Olympian speed-walking girlfriend, a Trinidadian reggae star and an Illusionist who knows the secrets the island holds. So grab your passport and plan a trip to Even Greater Britain to learn about the prince and his fate! There will be feasts, cassowaries, sock puppets and more. Recorded on 04.12.2015.
"In Memory" explores the unsurpassed power of music to both express sorrow and a sense of loss and to celebrate a life, through compositions by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and contemporary composer Joel Hoffman.
