The College of Central Florida’s Musical Theatre Department will collaborate with (F)Actor Theatre Company to present “[title of show],” Friday and Saturday, July 26-27, starting at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, July 28, at 3 p.m., in the Black Box Theatre located in the Dassance Fine Arts Center, 3001 S.W. College Road.
“[title of show]” is about two self-confessed nobodies in New York who make a pact to write an original musical and submit it to a festival in three weeks. As the deadline looms the team decides to set off on a unique musical adventure: writing a musical about writing a musical. In this intelligent, playful, loveable musical, the audience is treated to an insider’s look at the tough work of being a creative artist. The music and lyrics are by Jeff Bowen and the book is written by Hunter Bell.
This show is directed by Janet Shelley from West Port High School’s Marion County Center of the Arts and is produced with special permission from Rogers and Hammerstein Theatricals. Music director is Jason Longtin, associate professor of music at CF, and scenic designer is Joey Coombs, CF graduate. The show was a Tony nominee for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.
