UNCW Department of Communication Studies ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS
for QUILT: A MUSICAL CELEBRATION from Music Theatre International

QUILT: A MUSICAL CELEBRATION is based on stories for, from, and about the
NAMES Project AIDS memorial quilt.  The book is by Jim Morgan, Merle Hubbard
and John Schak, with music by Michael Stockler and lyrics by Jim Morgan.

In 1987, the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt was created.  The physical quilt is described on its website as a “poignant memorial, a powerful tool for use in preventing new HIV infections, and the largest ongoing community arts project in the world.”  

QUILT: A MUSICAL CELEBRATION takes this art project to another level.  As a theater piece, the show uses story and song to add another dimension to the emotional weight and significance of the physical quilt.
