The Boy Who Kept a Secret
2017 show for portland 1-week camp
The Boy Who Kept A Secret is a musical adaptation of a Hungarian folk tale. We follow the exploits of a boy who, as might be guessed, holds a secret which he has been forbidden to tell. His mother and her friends, the local townsfolk, pirates, an evil sultan, and a witch all try to wrest the secret from the boy. The story follows his adventures as he strives to keep this secret even in high adversity, and prevent a war between the sultan and the innocents the Sultan is targeting.
Originally performed in 2008, The Boy Who Kept A Secret got a major upgrade in 2015, with all-new songs, characters, and a mostly new storyline.
