Don't Miss "Broadway's Next Hit Musical"

Aug 1, 2017

Imagine buying tickets to a show that hasn’t even had its script written yet … that’s just what’s happening with the upcoming performance of "Broadway’s Next Hit Musical."

This touring production will take the Bedell stage on August 26. The comedy takes place during an awards show where master improvisers gather made up hit song suggestions from the audience and then create a spontaneous evening of music, humor, and laughter. Assistant Director of the River Campus Bob Cerchio says while it may be a new show to the River Campus, it’s an old concept.

"Well if they've ever seen a show like "Whose Line is it Anyway?" that is a show where the audience suggests ideas and in this case the ideas are made-up song titles and then the actors, including a very talented pianist, on stage create on the spur of the moment a song that matches that song title."

Cerchio says the show’s performers are some of New York City’s best improv comedians and musicians. The producers say when audience members arrive, they are asked to make up the title of a song and the cast takes it from there.

You can get tickets to our very own unique production now by calling the Box Office at 573-651-2265. As always more information is available at RiverCampus.org and I hope to see you soon at the Box Office!
