Gulfport Little Theatre is proud to present its winter youth musical production, Night at the Wax Museum - The Musical, by Craig Sodaro. Night is directed by Cal Walters with Musical Direction by Bonnie Hoeg. The show runs February 21-23 with curtain at 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and matinee performances on both Saturdays and Sundays with curtain at 2pm. School performances will be at GLT on Tuesday the 25th.
In a take-off on the blockbuster movies featuring Ben Stiller and Robin Williams, the hysterical meets the historical in this comic romp through the wackiest wax museum in history! A group of six unlucky summer school students find themselves on a class trip that puts them face to face with history’s most notorious villains and heroes, including Henry VIII, Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn, Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and Blackbeard the Pirate. Historical hilarity ensues as the treasure-hungry outlaws, pirates, and royalty mount the greatest siege since Vicksburg!
GLT’s production of Night includes a cast of nearly 50 performers ranging in age from 6-21, with colorful scenery and lighting, beautiful period costumes, and musical inspiration from bluegrass to mariachi to Mannheim Steamroller! With an upbeat story and fast-paced dialogue, the show is sure to please audiences of all ages. Just watch out for the notorious Lizzie Borden!
