Broadway’s Next Hit Musical Coming to Walton Arts Center
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, January 25, 2021 – Walton Arts Center will continue Procter & Gamble Ghost Light Programming with Broadway’s Next Hit Musical at 7 pm on March 18 and 19. Tickets are $25 plus applicable fees and will go on sale Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 10 am.
Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is an evening ofWhose Line Is It Anyway? meets The Tony Awards®. It’s all improvised and completely different every night.
Audience members make up song titles, and five master improvisational actors turn them into full blown “nominated songs” with vibrant choreography and catchy melodies for the coveted Phony Award. The audience votes for their favorite song, and then watches as the cast turns it into a full-blown improvised musical – complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue and plot twists galore.
Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffmann and Deb Rabbai, The New York Times called Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “Hilarious!” Time Out NY said “At last! A musical of, for, and by the people.”
The performances will be in Baum Walker Hall with a minimum of four empty seats between parties, and every other row will remain empty. These empty rows, with select seats removed, will also serve as walkways to seats located in the center of the theater, reducing contact between patrons.
Masks will be required and social distancing will be enforced. For a complete list of state-approved health and safety precautions that will be in place for this and future performances at Walton Arts Center visit www.waltonartscenter.org.
Originally scheduled to resume early this year, large Broadway tours will now return to Northwest Arkansas this fall as part of the new 2021-22 season. Subscriptions will be available this spring when the season lineup is announced, and single tickets will go on sale this summer. In the meantime, P&G Ghost Light Programming will continue at Walton Arts Center.
Ghost Light Programming is presented by Procter & Gamble and provided in part by supporters of the Ghost Light Recovery Fund.
