Kansas City Repertory Theatre will conclude its 50th anniversary with a developmental production of Stillwater, a new musical that will blend rock, pop and alt-country. The project features book and lyrics by Nathan Tysen, behind the Broadway-bound Tuck Everlasting and the anticipated Amelie adaptation premiering this fall.

The project, which features F. Michael Haynie (Wicked) and Curt Hansen (Hairspray, Next to Normal), will be staged inside the Spencer Theatre Scene Shop May 13-24. Music is by Joe's Pet Project.

Stillwater is billed as an "angst-filled love letter to a generation." It weaves the stories of two love triangles or six twenty-somethings: a drug dealer, his recovering addict ex-girlfriend and the neighbor who is infatuated with her; along with a musician on the brink of stardom, his unfaithful girlfriend and her one-night-stand.

The ensemble cast will also feature David George, Shanna Jones, Ryan McCall and Emily Shackelford; as well as Midwestern band Joe's Pet Project, consisting of band members Tysen, Lance Gilchrist, Jason Hammond, John Hobson and Ryan McCall.
