From a press release:
“In the future there is darkness. An unknown catastrophic event has closed the sky to what was once Ancient Egypt; no memory of what the world was before this eternal night remains. Electricity is now so valuable and scarce it is treated as currency – and a powerful Pharaoh keeps the people divided. The rich glow bright with power while the poor are drained until they have nothing left. Chenzira, an unusual boy from the lower crust of society, is searching for the secrets of the pyramids with his companions. What he will finds will change not only his life, but and the destiny of humanity. Set to a synthesis of garage rock and larger-than-life electronic sounds, The Electric Pharaoh is the 6th original feature written and produced by The Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS).
RUNNING TIME: 2.5 hours including intermission. Fri/Sat at 8 PM. Sunday at 6:00 PM. WASHINGTON D.C. SHOW DATES: October 31, November 1 and 2nd LOCATION: Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H Street, NE, Washington, DC

The Baltimore Rock Opera Society is a passionate community of artists who create unforgettable experiences through live original rock theater. BROS was founded in 2007 by a small group of friends sitting in a basement dreaming of an impossibly enormous story that would be told through the awesome power of rock. Since that time BROS has become a powerhouse of Baltimore’s cultural landscape comprised of a highly energetic group of actors, writers, designers, builders, musicians, and artists with the mission of producing original, live rock operas.”
