Hanover College hosts improv comedy
'Broadway's Next Hit Musical'
Byline info is not available
Thursday, October 17, 2013 11:00 AM
The award-winning comedy, "Broadway's Next Hit Musical," will be presented at Hanover College on Saturday.
The 7:30 p.m. show will be in Parker Auditorium. The New York-based performance group is part of the college's homecoming celebration, and part of the 2013-2014 Community Arts Series.
The musical comedy is completely improvised, as the singers and actors involved create new performances for each show.
Act one is an award ceremony where the ensemble uses the audience to create song titles.
The performers then generate different melodies, lyrics and dance routines. The second act is an entire musical based on the winning number from act one.
Mark Fearnow, the director of Hanover's Community Art Series, said the college has been wanting to get the group to perform at the college for a few years.
"(Homecoming) was a chance to schedule them and we're happy to have them," he said.
"It's a perfect homecoming show. It appeals to a lot of different age groups. I think it will appeal to our students now, all the way up to our oldest alumni."
Tickets for the show are $15 in advance, $18 at the door for adults or $15 for seniors, Hanover faculty and staff. Admission for high school-aged children and younger is $5. Hanover college students get in free with their school ID.
