A fractured friendship turns into a spirited rivalry among two young singers in "The Destiny of Rose," a new musical play with two performances Oct. 2 in the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts (450 Masten Ave.).
The show, co-written by Phil Davis and Christopher B. Pearman and produced by Davis' Buffalo-based company Alemaedae Theater of Dreams, tells the story of two girls who take divergent paths into the entertainment industry.
"Their friendship is tested as they are both introduced to the evils of the music industry in the quest to live out their dreams," according to a release. "Rose and Destiny are on a collision course to see if friendship maters more than fame."
Pearman, whose daughter is the actress Raven-Symoné, has produced a series of music videos, short films and commercials in addition to serving as a consultant on the sitcom "That's So Raven." Davis has written a series of musical plays exploring the entertainment industry and life in the black community.
Performances are at 2 and 5 p.m. Oct. 2 in the BAVPA auditorium. Tickets are $20 in advance or $30 at the door, with a $5 discount for those who bring an article of clothing. Proceeds from the production will benefit the Hearts for the Homeless mobile soup kitchen. Call 402-8367 or visit atpgalaxy.com.
