TROY Davis Theatre gets marching with musical "Band Geeks!"
MONTGOMERY— Troy University's Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts will present a fun-filled tribute to marching bands and misfits everywhere with a performance of the musical "Band Geeks!" on Friday, April 20 at 7 p.m.
Presented by the TROY Department of Theatre and Dance, "Band Geeks!" follows the misadventures of the Belleview High Marching Beavers. With just a few members and dwindling funds, the band is close to extinction. When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, tuba-playing band captain Elliott and his best friend Laura must find a way to unite the band, embrace their inner geek and save the Marching Beavers.
"Band Geeks!" features music by Mark Allen, Gaby Alter and Troy University alumnus Tommy Newman, and lyrics by Alter and Newman. The book is by Newman and Gordon Greenberg, who directed the original production for Goodspeed Musicals, based on a concept by Newman.
Tickets for the performance range in price from $15 to $25. A limited number of tickets for this performance are being offered at the special rate of "buy one, get one free."
The Davis Theatre is located in downtown Montgomery at 251 Montgomery Street. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call the Theatre office at (334) 241-9567. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to noon.
The performances of "Band Geeks!" are being presented as part of TROY's yearlong 125th Birthday Celebration.
