    • "Ghostlight" by Dave Glyde
    • "Circus" by Britney Spears
  • Description: "Some people maintain that the function of the lone stage light is to chase away mischievous spirits; others insist it illuminates the space for the spirits that are said to inhabit virtually every theatre, keeping them happy and contented. Without a doubt, the paranormal dance of the empty theatre is mysterious, magical and rich in folklore... Ghostlight shines a light on 154 extraordinary performers as the Blue Devils travel the United States for a summer of music, motion and imagination. With a rich history of excellence and innovation, Drum Corps International’s most honored drum corps celebrates one hundred yards of discovery. On a stage where anything is possible, Ghostlight reveals the traveling performance troupe of contemporary drum and bugle corps we all treasure."

    • "Liquid" by Jay Bocook, Kevin Shah, Mike Jackson
    • "Hurt" by Trent Reznor
    • "Lonely World" by Moses Sumney
  • Description: "We are a sum of our memories. Some we accept, celebrate, and cherish. Others we may want to put behind us. Some make us proud. Others give us pause. Some are just glimpses, faded images filed away from a distant time. Others so vivid and powerful that we carry them with us every minute of every day. This can be said of us as individuals, as a community, as an activity. The stories we tell, the dreams we have, and art we create all point to our never-ending desire to live moments worthy of our short time here. We find comfort knowing that we can create memories for ourselves and those we love through a relentless pursuit of a shared vision. No matter how small or insignificant we all may feel, we can all know that we played a role in creating a sliver of essence within each other. Ultimately, this show is a collection of the shards and pieces of memories, inspirations, ideas, reflections, and visions of the people who design, create, teach, serve, and perform at the Blue Knights."

    • "The End"
  • Description: "From the cacophony of the 1960s rose the one band to rule them all - The Beatles. The famous foursome not only shaped music history, but also informed the rapidly changing cultural landscape around them as the band evolved from their teeny-bopper roots to the revolutionary social awareness, psychedelia, and musical experimentation of their later work. Throughout their meteoric rise - from working-class Liverpool and honing their craft in Hamburg, to Beatlemania, the Ed Sullivan show, and rocking Shea Stadium - The Beatles contributed not just soul-stirring medleys and unforgettable lyrics to the world of music, but hairstyles, fashion, and cultural consciousness across the universe. It is in that spirit of collaboration and innovation that we present our 2019 program, 'The BLUECOATS.' From 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' to Abbey Road, we use 21st-century technology, unavailable when the music was created, to harness the breadth and depth of the Beatles’ catalog and explore our own evolution - on stage and live in concert."

Today, the phrase 'David and Goliath' refers to an underdog scenario; a competition where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much larger and stronger adversary. Through careful planning and enormous human will, the 'David' character finally defies overwhelming odds to emerge victorious. The Boston Crusaders display and develop the inherent drama and emotion of this underdog story. Drawing on familiar themes from literature and film, contrast and scale literally and figuratively set the stage for this epic portrayal. The 2019 production delivers a powerful combination of variety and conceptual continuity while guiding viewers through the life-long process of innocence, preparation, and conflict to arrive at the ultimate moment of truth."

    • "Symphony No. 4" by David Maslanka
  • Description: “'Behold is, by definition, a command for respect and is often used to introduce something remarkable or impressive. The design team wanted to honor the remarkable story of resilience, strength, unity, and healing for The Cadets and for all women in our activity and our country, as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of women in The Cadets in 2019,' said Darcie Aungst, Program Coordinator. 'I was intrigued by women in history who lead entire nations as far back as Ancient Egypt and Rome; often pondering the question, what happened? Why in 2019 is it a struggle? This show explores that history and those questions. Behold tells a tale of female strength and leadership, the ugliness of jealousy, discrimination, and power when it is held over others. The show points triumphantly to images and sounds of true equality and opportunity for everyone regardless of gender, race, orientation, identity, or ethnicity. Shattering the glass ceiling opens opportunities for everyone who has been told they are ‘less than’ and leaves our world a better place for future generations.'”

The club scene takes us from small inviting groups to feverish crowds to explosions of energy and chaos. It’s more than an underground party: It’s a glorious adventure of sight and sound. The music drives movement and dictates interactions. Private moments are shared even in this unconventional and large crowd. Dancers find one partner and share intimate moments. As the music slows, life slows with it. Lingering dances become captivating. When the music picks up, the crowd blends together again in a bouncing blast of colorful neon. As the music ends, it’s time to leave this electrifying world behind and return to reality."

  • Description: "Waves crashing, distant ominous singing, and other oceanic sound designs by James Pluth begin the show as a seaward vessel is headed for disaster. A sweet and seductive female vocal leads into a powerful brass impact of 'La Mer' by Claude Debussy followed by a quick statement of 'Aquarium' by Camille Saint-Saens which sends the corps spiraling under the water as the sirens drag them into the deep. Musical styles and feels change as the corps is introduced to the Sirens’ undersea universe. Utilizing Christina Aguilera’s 'Genie in a Bottle' along with innovative metallic sounds in the percussion, the Sirens attempt to seduce and manipulate the corps as they attempt to ensnare them permanently in their world. Symbolized by Alan Silvestri’s 'Finale' from the Abyss soundtrack the Sirens now have the corps fully entranced under their spell. A short percussion transition snaps them out of it as the corps realizes the Sirens’ malevolent plans for them. Driven by the second movement of Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony, the corps is in a desperate fight to reach the surface again. With one final triumphant statement of 'La Mer' the corps reaches the surface and escapes the clutches of the wicked Sirens once and for all."

Do we have the courage to move forward into the unknown to find out what’s on the other side? Featuring original compositions by Key Poulan, Dan Bryan, and Travis Peterman, we create a feeling of apprehension, wonder, and intrigue using our costumes, staging, and distinct soundscape. A series of gateways appear on the field, symbolic of the never-ending cycle of change. While it is natural to fear the unknown and sometimes get stuck between one thing and the next, ultimately we are able to embrace our arrival on the other side and celebrate our journey."

The original composition by the talented Paul Rendon, Brandon Johnson and Marcel Barragán will provide the background for a musical and visual journey as the corps explores the mythological tapestry of ancient Egypt and it’s most famous natural resource, the majestic Nile River.  Known as the “bringer of life”, much of Egyptian mythology and religion focuses in and around the Nile. From birth to death, from peace to war, and love to anger, the Gods of the Nile provided ancient Egyptians with guidance and direction through life.
