    Sunflower the Musical starring Guy Forsyth at Austin Scottish Rite Theater

    Austin's Oldest and Dearest Theater will be premiering Sunflower: The Musical, a new play starring multiple Austin Music Award winning local icon, Guy Forsyth. The play is written by Laura Guli, with music by Premila Mistry, and directed by Deanna Belardinelli.

    Sunflower is the story of Amalie and Vincent van Gogh. Starring Guy Forsyth as Vincent. Sunflower is an original musical that tells the story of Amalie, a shy and sensitive 6th Grader, who magically travels through the painting, cafe Terrace at Night, and meets the 19th century artist Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) at the cafe.

    Sunflower is a musical about facing bullying, about loneliness and belonging. It is about the power of art to inspire and lift up, about finding the courage to be oneself, and the importance of kindness and inclusion. Sunflower has an uplifting message and raises mental health awareness. Due to some of the mature content of the show, it is recommended for ages 9 and up.
