CAP 21 presents The Time Traveler's Convention as part of its Monday Night Reading Series. Featuring music by Mike Pettry, with book and lyrics by Heidi Hansen-Young.
Three college students hold a convention to travel back in time and undo the tragedies of the past. By putting invitations inside classic novels in the library they hope to contact a time traveler from the future. Their scheme works and a stranger arrives. This quirky musical, with a contemporary score by Jonathan Larson Award-winner Mike Pettry, explores parent/child relationships, loss and grief, and the universal desire to change the past.
