In commemoration of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, the creative team of A JOURNEY OF ANGELS - a new musical in development about one courageous girl's will to survive and fight for freedom during the Armenian Genocide of 1915 - will present an evening of select songs and scenes from the musical in development on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 pm at Herbert Hoover High School Auditorium (651 Glenwood Road, Glendale, CA 91202). Tickets for the evening are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for students; and are available for purchase at the theatre on the night of the performance.
Based on the novel My Mother’s Voice by Dr. Kay Mouradian, A JOURNEY OF ANGELS tells the story of an impassioned, 14-year-old Armenian girl named Flora, who dreams of furthering her education at the American Missionary school and traveling to far-away places to experience the diversity of the world. Her dream comes to an unforeseen halt, when the Turkish government announces the proclamation that all Armenians must be removed from their homes and driven on a forced march, leaving behind everything. Flora is faced with the horror of losing her entire family with the exception of her beloved sister. As she travels down the harrowing paths during the Armenian Genocide of 1915, Flora finds the courage and will to survive and fight for her freedom. A JOURNEY OF ANGELS is currently in development with a theatrical workshop planned for June 2019 in Los Angeles.
