*2022 Jonathan Larson Grant Finalist*


Book, Music & Lyrics

In a future that echoes a dystopian past, the once-thriving Jackmann and Sinclair kingdoms stood apart. A treaty aimed to unite them, fostering economic ties, kinship, and protection. Yet, this alliance shattered when the Sinclairs’ broke the sacred covenant, unleashing devastation upon Jackmann's land and slaying their beloved King. Now, ten years later, the tale unfolds through the eyes of Halona Jackmann, the courageous Queen of the seas and daughter of the fallen King. Amidst her journey, her encounter with Ophelia, (a past love,now hardened), threatens to disrupt everything. The Jackmann’s set sail to restore what was unjustly taken.But can the scales of justice ever truly balance without exacting a toll?


With profound depth and spiritual grace, the resplendent new musical HALONA & OPHELIA weaves a tapestry of intricate emotions-love and hatred, entwined in a timeless dance; community bound by shared destiny; the pursuit of justice and the enigmatic forces of fate.
