Winter Musical will be Tony Award-winning "City of Angels"

Production will run February 22-24 and feature a cast of 29 (for 45 roles), a jazz-based score, and a story within a story about a private detective
Headlining a meal, a play, and a cabaret, the weekend of February 22-24 has a lot to offer on the Hilltop.

The Tony Award-winning 1989 City of Angels will be this year's winter musical. Set in the 1940s, the story-within-a story production, full of twists and turns, earned six Tonys, nine Drama Desk Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical; and most important, the nod from Arts Department Chair and Theatre Director Chip Lamb. "It is a comedy spoof of the film noir pictures of the 1940s,” explains Lamb, and “involves a screenwriter and the movie he is writing about a private detective.” The score, by Cy Coleman, says Mr. Lamb, “is heavily based in jazz. If you are a fan of the singing group Manhattan Transfer,” he adds, “you will love this.” A cast of 29 will be playing some 45 roles.

The dates for performances are Friday through Sunday, February 22-24. Saturday, February 23 is the night of the annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.
