The Curse of Shadow’s Edge

Der Fluch von Shadow's Edge

Poster: Der Fluch von Shadow’s Edge

After the success of The Road to Fame the Broadway Company presents their new musical hit “The Curse of Shadow’s Edge – Return of the Vampires“. This year’s show is dominated by vampires and demons!

In the small dreamy village Shadow’s Edge dark figures make troubles during the nights. And all that when the annual halloween ball is just around the corner.

Will the dark forces win or is the magic of light and love of the humans stronger?! Be curious and experience together with our young performers exciting adventures in Shadow’s Edge.

Diversified and intoxicating is also the music choice: Famous musical hits (Tanz der Vampire, Les Misérables) and modern songs from Alicia Keys, Green Day, Queen oder Lady Gaga.

Sung, danced and performed by talented kids and teenagers between 8 and 21 years and students of the Broadway Dance Academy, who studied since half a year with experienced musical and stage professionals. Together with their famous colleagues they created a musical with great numbers, which is presented in the theater.

Don’t Dream It.
Be It.
