‘Broadway’s Next Big Hit’ premieres

For Immediate Release:  Sept. 6, 2016

BLOOMSBURG— The next big Broadway hit may be created in Bloomsburg University’s Carver Hall, Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium on Saturday, Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Celebrity Artist Series.

In “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical,” an improvised musical comedy, stage veterans, improv comedians and musicians will create a show of spontaneous music and comedy. The audience will suggest songs and scenes for the cast to improvise and perform and then vote on the scenes until they turn into a full-blown musical.

The cast, emcee and pianist are veterans of Broadway stages and some of New York City’s best improv comedians and musicians. The ensemble has spent 15 years crafting the ability to create a whole musical from a single audience suggestion.

Tickets are $30 for adults, and $15 for children and BU students.  For tickets and details, call the Haas Center box office at 570-389-4409.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
