"EXTINCTION: A Love Story” was staged by the Dona Ana Lyric Opera in the Music Center Recital Hall at New Mexico State University. This fully-staged workshop production was directed by Mark Medoff and featured Jessica Medoff-Bunchman as ALLY, Isaac Quiroga as BOB, Ian Siddon as TYE, Brandon Brown as BRANDON, Ashley Foster as BIRDY and Richard Rundell as PEN. Costumes were designed by Deborah Brunson of NMSU, and Shawn Robinson conducted the orchestra. Shanelle Jernigan was the musical director/accompanist. Cathy Carver created the piano score for EXTINCTION through the two summer workshops (led by Mark Medoff), which were held at New Mexico State University in the summers of 2006 and 2007 (with composer Randall Shinn in 2007). Highlights of an early version of the musical were performed for "Dinos on the Rocks", a gala fund-raising event hosted by the El Paso Insights Museum.
