In the Lobby: Side Show

UM Theatre presents the musical Side Show in Reynolds Theatre this week only.

WHEN: Thursday-Saturday, April 20-22, 7:30 p.m., as well as a matinee on Saturday, 4/22 at 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: Reynolds Studio Theatre.

TICKET INFORMATION: $12 with a UM ID and $15 for the general public. Reservations are not required but suggested, and can be made at (205) 665-6200. Please note: Side Show contains adult themes (no profanity) and is not suitable for children, although teenagers are welcome at the production.

UM Theatre and the Music Department are proud to present this exciting musical event that is now recognized as one of the most daring and unique Broadway musicals of recent years.

The Hilton Sisters will be played by theatre and voice major Megan Stein and Vocal Performance major Natalie Dixon. Their managers and love interests, Terry and Buddy, will be portrayed by theatre major Carl Maguire and theatre and voice major Stephen Elkins. Other major roles include theatre majors Jason Styres as The Boss and Jairus Bean as Jake. The cast includes many veterans of past plays as well as 13 students appearing in either their first production or musical at UM.

David Callaghan (director) and Charles Wood (Musical Director/Conductor) team up again after their recent musical collaboration on A Class Act. Jason Styres returns as choreographer after last year's Godspell, and John Franklin is responsible for the numerous period and side show influenced costumes. Kel Laeger will provide set and lighting design to round out the design team, with freshman theatre major EJ Wilson working as production stage manager with assistants Kelsey Sherrer and Madison Colquette.
