ON DISTANT SHORES — Based on the True Story by Veteran Arthur Dewsberry / SO PROUDLY WE HAILED
Length: 16:30 

New Musicals Inc. is proud to launch a new episode of SO PROUDLY WE HAILED, the musical webseries honoring veterans in their own words.

“On Distant Shores” is a short musical based on a love story that started just before Second Lieutenant Arthur Dewsberry’s deployment to Korea in 1952, and lasted for over sixty years. Based on the true story by Arthur Dewsberry; book and lyrics by Richard Castle; music by Ron Barnett. Dramaturged and directed by Elise Dewsberry, and featuring Robert Towers.

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.
