Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director, Presents:
Son of the Sun
A musical for the soul
The Son of the Sun is a story about a young man, Helios, and a young woman, Selene, who is the girlfriend and childhood friend of Helios. Helios is an avid, inspirational speaker who is able to communicate with his soul from a very young age. Selene is the complete opposite. She cannot relate to her soul or anything else. She is lost and clings to Helios for some kind of salvation which she never finds. She turns to drugs which is a manifestation from a secret she has kept her entire life. Selene runs away and is nowhere to be found. Her disappearance devastates Helios. As Helios searches for Selene, he becomes discouraged and loses his positive outlook on life. This weakens his relationship with his soul and redirects his soul away from the sun. The sun is his soul’s final destination. His soul pleads with him to change his negativity into positivity. The soul must reach the sun! The soul is counting on Helios since he cannot make it to the sun without Helios positivity. Will Helios stay on the path? Will Selene be found? Will Soul have a triumphant voyage to the sun?
