Music and Lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver
Directed by Catie O'Donnell

Composer Ryan Scott Oliver wrote this cycle of dark, provocative songs in response to a series of photographs. Each song tells a story: A vampire's doomed love affair. A frustrated male nanny's woes. A religious icon. A vengeful ghost. A ruthless candidate for prom queen. And more.

With this unique collaboration, MTM will bring the idea of inspiration full circle, performed against the backdrop of photos inspired by the songs and taken by Madison based photographers. Fusing the worlds of photography and musical theatre, 35MM promises to be a theatrical experience unlike any other.
