Autumn Moon: A Rock Musical Thriller will make its world premiere at The Wings Theatre from August 11-September 2.

The show, with music, lyrics and book by David Velarde, is billed as a seductive, action-packed musical thriller that weaves a new beginning to a timeless horror classic.

On the eve of his twenty-fifth birthday, a young man named Lycan is troubled by increasingly tormenting nightmares. Desperate for answers, he turns to a psychic who reveals that, as a result of a deal struck by one of his ancestors with the devil, Lycan is destined to transform into a bloodthirsty werewolf with each full moon, starting on his twenty-fifth birthday. Through supernatural means, Lycan journeys backwards in time to one of his past lives in an attempt to break the curse.

The show is directed by Jonathan Stuart Cerullo, with choreography by Lauren Cozza, musical direction by Martin Bejerano, scenery and prop design by Deborah Gaouette, lighting design by Julie Seitel, costume design by Stephen Smith, and stage management by Colleen Sherry.
