Prospect Theater Company has announced casting for the New York premiere of The Hidden Sky, a new musical based on the Ursula K. Le Guin short story "The Masters." The show features music and lyrics by Peter Foley and book by Kate Chisholm, who also directs. It will be presented at the West End Theatre, January 30 - February 28.

As the show begins, an apocalypse, brought on by the misuse of technology, has ravaged the earth. The musical follows Ganil, a young woman whose longing for knowledge leads her on a passionate journey of discovery.

Victoria Huston-Elem will star as Ganil, with Mark Mozingo as Lani, Gordon Stanley as Lee, Ben Gunderson as Mede, and Joy Lynn Matthews as Yin. Also in the ensemble are Jane R. Bunting, Jose Candelaria, Robbie Fowler, Nadine Malouf, Jesse Manocherian, Rita Markova, Hannah Jane McMurray, and Lawrence E. Street.

The production team will include Darren Lee (choreography), Remy Kurs (music direction and orchestrations), Jon Russ (additional orchestrations), Sarah Pearline (set), Sidney Shannon (costumes), Jorge Arroyo (lighting), and Asa Wember (sound).

In conjunction with the Saturday, February 20 performance, Prospect will host an afternoon symposium featuring scholars and artists, including the show's creators, in discussion about the relationship between mathematics and music, the historical conflict between science and religion, and other ideas explored in The Hidden Sky. Admission to this special event, to begin at 1pm at the West End Theatre, is free; reservations are encouraged by emailing rsvp@ProspectTheater.org.
