Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party
by Andrew Lippa
Directed by Jeffery Lesniak
Music Directed by Elizabeth Alford
Choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell

August 30 – September 15, 2019

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

A steamy prohibition tale, that tells the story of lovers Queenie and Burrs, who decide that their mutually abusive relationship can be fixed by throwing the party-to-end-all parties. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, the decadence reaches a climax, as does Burrs’ jealously. A gun gets fired, but who’s been shot?

Please prepare a song; bring sheet music, an accompanist will be provided. Come dressed for movement, and be prepared to read from the script. Please provide a resumé and a headshot (if you have one) and have your conflicts handy.

Performances will be August 30 – September 15, 2019.

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kogod Theatre, general admission.

When Queenie and Burrs set out to throw the party to end all parties, their motives aren’t exactly pure. Each intent on driving the other wild with jealousy, the night escalates into a deadly game of one upmanship. With a jazz-steeped score by the Tony and Grammy-nominated Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, Big Fish), this firecracker of a musical holds nothing back.

Directed by Michael V. Hartsfield
Produced by Maureen Rogers
Words and Music by Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

Friday April 25, 2014 through Sunday May 18, 2014

Description: Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties. An award-winning score by Andrew Lippa provides excitement and drive for this tale of passions out of control. Capturing the sound of a bygone era with a nod to the present one, he makes us realize that moral decadence is not only limited to our past.

Performances run weekends from Friday April 25, 2014 through Sunday May 18, 2014 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 for general admission. Admission for students (18 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15. For reservations, please call 301-617-9906 and press 2.
