The Wild Party

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa The Wild Party

Directed by Brittni Michele Shambaugh, MFA Directing Candidate

Sex, Drugs, Alcohol, and Vaudeville! This gritty musical set in the 1920s explores what happens when emotionally vulnerable and sexually hungry performers get together during the age of Prohibition. Does the party overtake the individual? Is the humanity lost in the chaos? What is left at the conclusion of this riotous night? Come dressed in your best roaring twenties attire and be part of the wildest party in town!
