Guests who attend the University of North Texas’ next Fine Arts Series event can help write the show.
The Fine Arts Series brings the improvisational comedy Broadway’s Next Hit Musical to the UNT campus at 7 p.m. April 3 at the University Union Lyceum, 1155 Union Circle.
Broadway’s Next Hit Musical gives the audience an opportunity to participate. Before the show, guests suggest song titles. The first half of the show parodies award shows and uses the song titles as the nominees. The cast makes up the lyrics, music and choreography for the songs. The audience votes for its favorite song and the winner is then incorporated into a “musical” in the second half of the show.
Billed as Whose Line Is It Anyway? meets the Tony Awards, Broadway’s Next Hit Musical has been featured in the Tribeca Film Festival and New York Musical Theater Festival. Some of the songs that have been made up and performed include “Eat the Food,” “Cows Are Happier in Wisconsin” and “Pizza Rolls for My Love.”
Tickets are free for UNT students and cost $5 for a student guest ticket (limit one), $5 for UNT staff, faculty and alumni and $10 for the general public. They can be purchased at UNTuniontickets.com.
