I’m a composer and conductor as well as theatrical performer. I’m always around the scores for musicals and had a desire to create one. When I had the avenue to have one performed, I finished an idea for a show I’d had for years.
“An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding”. For Jack Austin, it’s a calling for greatness. His music is contemporary and reverent; a release of deep sorrow that ignites a passion for life. But what happens when this young composer finds he’s sacrificing family, friends and love for an isolated life dedicated to the detail of his craft? Bright is the Ring of Words is a new musical for anyone who’s ever been lost in the darkness but felt destined for great light.
