Theatre For Thought Production

[title of show]
A Musical By Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell
Directed by Jessi Hersman
Music Directed by Aaron Kaplan

Big Deal Productions is excited to present our 2022 Theatre For Thought production [Title Of Show]. This musical theatre comedy will be performed at the Community Arts Center. Performances are scheduled for February 10, 11, and 12 at 7 pm, and February 13 at 3 pm. Tickets will be available for purchase at on January 4. All tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, plus a 95¢ convenience fee.

This one-act musical chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and follows the struggles of the author and composer/lyricist and their 2 actor friends during the initial brief (3-week) creative period, along with subsequent events leading up to the show's production. This show is recommended for ages 18 and older. Our production will be followed by a talkback led by the directing staff. Together, our artistic team and the audience will discuss the artistic process and challenges of putting together theatre during COVID. We will also touch on the survival and change of the arts during the pandemic and any other arts questions and topics driven by our audience. As always, our hope is that our Theatre For Thought show selection helps our community focus on an important topic and starts a conversation that will extend outside the theatre walls.
