Music Directed by: David Pomeroy & Jared Martin 
Choreographed by: Kim Remp 
Stage Managed by: Donna Lambrecht 

The Wild Party is a big, swinging, debaucherous musical set in Manhattan decadence in the 1920's provides the backdrop for this tough musical fable. Queenie, a vaudeville chorine, hosts the blow-out of the title with her vicious lover. The jazz and gin soaked party rages to a mounting sense of threat as artifice and illusion are stripped away. When midnight debauchery leads to tragedy at dawn, the high-flying characters land with a sobering thud, reminding us that no party lasts forever. Written by George C. Wolfe and Michael John LaChiusa this award winning musical will prove one of our most decadent so far. Directed by Darren Canady this musical will bring a view on the world unlike any you've ever seen.
