Overview

Magical Music began its first family musical, The Adventures of Zak, in the year 2000. The story focuses on an energetic alien from a distant comet on a special mission to earth to get three children to believe in themselves. The 70 minute production features seven actors, four adults and three children, and includes fourteen songs, each fully orchestrated and recorded.



The show successfully toured in many professional theaters throughout New York and the northeast, entertaining children and families of all ages, while at the same time raising money for many national and local pediatric charities. In 2003, in order to bring the show to more children, a second version was produced. Trimmed to 45 minutes and redesigned with less technical requirements, The Adventures of Zak was then able to be performed in schools, hospitals and Boys and Girls Clubs as well as professional theatres.
In its seven years of being performed, 45 different actors presented Zak to an audience of over 22,000, in 31 different theatres in 7 states and Washington, D.C. for 43 different pediatric charities, organizations and events. Close to 600 children were given the opportunity to sing in the finale along side the actors as a featured Guest Chorus.
