April Alsup

In early 2014, April was still just a character in WYSIWYG the Musical, a composer trying to connect with the world through her music. Prior to the musical's premiere, her character, who is transgender, would venture into the real world in search of happiness, but to no avail. The World Wide Web becomes the conduit for her to log in and live out her dreams, albeit in cyberspace.

After the musical's premiere, April leaps off the pages of the script and the web to assume her life in the real world. Today she lives in Colorado, where she works as a composer, writer and activist in the Denver theater community. In 2017, she premiered her first full length music theater work, Sisyphus the Musical, at the Aurora Fox Theater and is currently in the initial development phase of Eigg the Musical, a piece set on a small island off the coast of Scotland.

In 2018, April debuted her new 90 minute production of WYSIWYG at the Vintage Theater in Denver. It was a sneak peek and photo op before heading off to New York City to participate in the 10th Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. It was a whirlwind for sure, but along the way the show has accumulated 12 award nominations for music theatre excellence, including: five Off-Broadway Awards and seven Regional Broadway World Awards.
