April Alsup is from Denver Colorado and enjoys writing musical theatre works; a composer, an innovator, an iconoclast, a little left brain, a little right brain and maybe a little scatterbrain. She studied music at Marietta College and Peabody Conservatory of Music. While in college she worked as the house pianist on the Becky Thatcher Riverboat. Following graduation, she toured with L.A.’s #1 80’s band, “The Twisters” and one of Hollywood’s most pretentious glam bands “Joshua”. A computer graphics wunderkind, April worked at MAGI, the company that produced the computer animations in the original movie TRON for Disney. An Internet pioneer, she founded Viewmark, Colorado's first web design firm, but soon thereafter the World Wide Web becomes her conduit to log in and live out her dreams, albeit in cyberspace. Inevitably, she makes her way back to her musical roots as a board member for the beloved Central City Opera.. In 2017, she premiered, The Age of Sisyphus at the Aurora Fox Theater and is currently in the development phase of The Burgess and the Laird, a piece set on the Isle of Eigg, a small Hebrides island off the mainland coast of Scotland. In 2018, April debuted her new 90 minute production of WYSIWYG at the 10th Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. It has been 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.
