There Was a Boy
A musical based on events in
the life of Nat King Cole

Written and Directed by James Rich

Music and Vocal Arrangements by Matt Falker

Set against the backdrop of Nat King Cole's rise to fame during the Capitol Records years--from 1943 to 1965--this is the story of a boy who falls in love with the world and longs for his father's approval, told through a narrative sermon about the prodigal son by the pop star's Baptist preacher father. 

Please call the MFAC ticket office at 443-885-4440 to reserve group seating for groups of 10 or more.  Group ticket rate will apply.
