Connections between people, and the amazing things that can come of them, are explored in Ordinary Days, the spring musical from Fresno Pacific University.

When Deb loses her most precious possession—the notes to her graduate thesis—she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.

The sung-through musical—where songs replace spoken dialogue—was written by Adam Gwon. Brandi Martin, MFA, assistant professor of theater arts at FPU, is directing this production. Live music is provided by Matthew Horton, university accompanist.
