From Here is an original musical written by our own Director of Theatre, Donald Rupe. The production originally premiered at the Orlando International Fringe Festival in 2019 to enthusiastic crowds and rave reviews. Expanded to a full-length musical, the story follows Daniel, a 30-something gay man on his journey to find love, fulfillment, and his tumultuous relationship with his mother. Daniel, born and raised in Orlando, is surrounded by a loving community of friends, and the musical also explores what life was like as a gay man in Orlando during the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub in 2016.
From Here carries an important message for our community, and for this show we proudly partner with the One Orlando Alliance, an organization that unifies and empowers  LGBTQ+ service organizations in Central Florida. Donations made while purchasing tickets for From Here will benefit the One Orlando Alliance to help members of our community.
