The newest production in SDSU’s New Musical Initiative, Postcard American Town follows a young woman’s awakening to the importance of social activism and a young man’s determination for change in the fictitious community of Westville. By examining the complexities of racial divisions in the United States through the simplicity of a small-town picnic, this musical reveals the universal impact of cultural discrimination. Written by Lynne Shankel and Crystal Skillman, this world premiere production will be directed by Professor Stephen Brotebeck from the School of Theatre, Television, and Film.
