“Don’t shoot; there’s kids in there!” Join us for the musical film, “Both Ends of the Barrel”
Length: 19:19 

Based on a true story about a Veteran who is shocked to discover he’s about to commit the very same crime to an innocent Iraqi family which happened to him as a child. “Both Ends of the Barrel” is a powerful musical which examines the intersection of civilian and military life. Based on the true story by Aramis Calderon; music and lyrics by Dusty Sanders; Directed and dramaturged by Catie O’Donnell, and featuring Ryland Shelton.

For this webseries, New Musicals Inc. has paired veteran honorees with an artistic team comprised of a composer, lyricist, director, and dramaturg, and then helped to shape their story into a short musical retelling in a digital platform.

This project is hosted by New Musicals Inc. This activity is supported in part by generous grants from: the Helen and Jose Colton Foundation; the Peter Glenville Foundation; the Anonymous Fund (Marin County); and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
