Original Production, Writer, Director, Choreographer

Premiered October 5th, 2020 at Columbia Children’s Theatre.

Shine is an original musical fable created by Terrance Henderson and Columbia’s IndigoSoul. The story follows a restless youth on his journey to find his own “light.”  On this quest, he encounters three muses who help him discover his true voice and how he can bring his own light into the world. Using new and traditional songs, poetry, dance, storytelling and shadow play, Shine illustrates the importance of focus, perspective, creativity and learning to look to your own history, culture and family traditions for inspiration. Taking audiences on a journey through soulful music with songs ranging from traditional African folksong to Blues and contemporary Shine is a new kind of coming of age story: one that lights a fire on the inside to burn brightly in the world.

The production employs illusionary staging using non-traditional light sources like glowing orbs, lasers and shadow-play.  Dances range from traditional African through swing and contemporary and much of the accompaniment is live onstage drumming.

“This is truly a labor of love,” says IndigoSoul’s Artistic Director Terrance Henderson.  “The entire cast has reached deep inside to help carve out this allegory of growing up, spreading your wings and finding your light.”
