Take a trip back in time to Panama in the roaring twenties, with PANAMA: THE MUSICAL, a musical about Panama performed in English. The show will premier in Panama City February 1st, 2018 at Teatro Ateneo in the City of Knowledge.

 Co-writers Rob Brown and Yolanda van der Kolk-Brown dual Panamanian/Canadian citizen and residents of the Pacific beach community have a deep connection to Panama and musical theatre. The third Co-writer of PANAMA: THE MUSICAL is Tara van der Kolk, this will be her debut as a musical composer. 

Rob, Yolanda, and Tara have worked with an all-star team of Panamanian and International talents to bring together what is expected to be a thrilling theatrical experience.  While the musical is primarily performed in English, Rob tells us PANAMA: THE MUSICAL incorporates lots of words and phrases in Spanish. 

Playwright Robert McQueen, the Dramaturge/theatrical consultant for PANAMA: THE MUSICAL. McQueen was the Associate Director of the musical MAMMA MIA on Broadway. Under the direction of the Panamanian Monalisa Arias, the maestro Dino Nugent in the musical direction and the recognized international music supervisor, David Warrack a cast of Panamanian and International artists and musicians, will perform a fusion of Latin dances, the Charleston and the Foxtrot. ’

With the Americans entering Panama and building the Panama Canal, American influences began to flow into the country affecting the fashion and music industry. While American trends broke through the Latin identity remained. The product is a unique blend of cultures, music, and nightlife that the music reflects. 

With the introduction of the radio, doors began to open offering access to the entertainment industry for regular people. People like Melody Luna, PANAMA: THE MUSICAL’s leading lady.
