Striking 12

with a special New Year’s Eve Performance

December 14 - December 31, 2017

By Brendan Milburn, Rachel Sheinkin & Valerie Vigoda
Direction by Ilana Becker
Music Direction by R.L. Rowsey and Grant Carey

Inspired in part by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl,” Striking 12 is a theatre-concert hybrid that springs to life through its rock band cast who tell the story of an overworked New Yorker who has resolved to spend New Year’s Eve alone, when an unexpected visitor brings much-needed hope and cheer. This uniquely musical urban fairytale co-written by Tony Award-winning book writer Rachel Sheinkin (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) with an eclectic and electric score by Valerie Vigoda and Brendan Milburn of the indie band GrooveLily, weaves three stories and settings—contemporary New York City, 19th century Denmark, and the Liberty Theatre right here in Hailey—into one magical, rock-tastic, playful, family-friendly holiday event.
