About the Show

REVOLUTIONARY is an acoustic rock musical that takes place in a near-future where the government requires citizens to have a computer chip planted in their arm, and those who don’t are subject to arrest by Robo Cops. After one of them is arrested and taken to a FEMA camp, the group takes refuge at the Source Center, a sanctuary for the homeless. While there, they become entangled in an underground revolution to help fight the encroaching fascism. As part of their indoctrination into the movement, they undergo a series of trainings and initiations that empower them to become spiritual rebels. They are guided by the charismatic leaders of The Source Center, who help the homeless youth, heal their addictions and activate them to Fifth Dimensional Consciousness through meditation, therapy and Ayahuasca ceremony. Their lives are forever changed and in their new found freedom, some of them enter into romantic relationships with people they never have thought they would. Together they all become the personification of the evolution of revolution, as they shift into a new paradigm here on Earth.
