What is all this?
It is three things: Fly North Music, Fly North Studios, and Fly North Theatricals. This is how it happened...
Fly North Music was established in 2017 as STL-based creative company that served as the production house for composer, Colin Healy.
By early 2018 it had grown into a successful private vocal studio -- Fly North Studios.
Then, Healy's musical The Gringo was selected to headline the St. Lou Fringe Festival in the summer of 2018. After becoming the best selling show in festival history, Colin and his friend Bradley Rohlf decided to try out this theatre thing... and in 2019 they established a new theatre company -- Fly North Theatricals.
So, to recap...
Wanna produce a new musical?
Fly North Music.
Wanna take voice lessons with cool, local theatre pros?
Fly North Studios.
Wanna see new works of musical theatre produced right here in STL?
Fly North Theatricals.
And what's the point?
To promote education through performance by utilizing both our students and local community of actors to create new, local, accessible, high-quality works of musical theatre.
