Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and the unforgettable songs of the ’70s take center stage in NCHS Theatre’s production of Disaster, the Musical! Broadway’s side-splitting homage to classic disaster films features hit songs such as “Knock on Wood,” “Hot Stuff,” “I am Woman,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” and many, many more (34 total to be exact)! This over-the-top musical comedy takes place on a floating casino, just off the coast of NYC (to get around the gambling laws) and thrusts together an unlikely cast of characters including a faded disco star, a disaster expert, a sexy nightclub singer, a feminist reporter, an untrustworthy businessman, a couple of hot waiters looking for love, and a nun with a gambling addiction. Who will survive and who will fall victim to the rats…sharks…piranhas…and falling disco balls? You’ll have to come find out for yourself. Tickets and information at www.newcanaanhighschooltheatre.com Performances (only three!) are Thursday May 25, Friday May 26, and Saturday May 27 at 7:00pm! Adult Content Warning: Disaster! May not be appropriate for younger audiences. Please feel free to reach out to Chris Myers email@example.com (he is the head of the program and directing the show) if you have questions. Tickets go on sale on April 28th.
