Catch ‘Plague, the Musical’ for Contagious Comedy
The Marble Valley Players are pleased to present, for the first time in the United States, ‘Plague, the Musical.’
Don’t be put off by the name; although the play takes place in 1665 during the London Bubonic plague, that’s where its historical accuracy ends.
‘Plague, the Musical’ is a romantic musical comedy, set against a background of London, England, during the Black Death, by authors David Massingham and Matthew Townend. It sold out at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and was named “Pick Of The Fringe’ that year.
This play is a bit of a departure for the Marble Valley Players, who usually do the tried and true musicals. Director Martin Bones chose this play for its broad appeal to fans of Monty Python-type humor.
‘Plague, the Musical’ features contagious music under the direction of Gary Schmidt, and lively dancing choreographed by Erika Schmidt, with an all-local cast.
This infectious musical comedy will be presented on October 18,19, and 25 at 8, plus a special midnight show on Saturday, October 26 after the Halloween parade. All performances are at the West Rutland Town Hall Theater.
Don’t miss this historical, hysterical performance which promises to be America’s next cult show. Seating is limited.
General admission tickets are $20, available paramountlive.org, at the Paramount Box Office, and at the door before performances.
