Gutenberg! The Musical!

Aug 10 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Art Barn School of Art - Valparaiso



GutenbergTheMusicalChesterton grads are here to produce The Art Barn School of Art’s first musical: Gutenberg!

Proudly presented by Ensemble Theatre Company, the musical by Anthony King and Scott Brown, is directed by and stars Zachary Gipson and Dustin Ritchea with Rachael Lauer on piano.

The musical comedy will run the first two weekends in August on the following days:

August 3: 8 p.m- 10 p.m.

August 4: 8 p.m- 10 p.m.

August 5: 2 p.m.- 4 p.m.

August 10: 8 p.m- 10 p.m.

August 11: 8 p.m- 10 p.m.

August 12: 2 p.m.- 4 p.m.

This hilarious two-person musical production showcases the creative work of the fictional characters Doug Simon and Bud Davenport, who have just finished writing an "original musical" about Johann Gutenberg's invention of the printing press. These aspiring playwrights are eager to get their musical on Broadway and decide to present it to an audience chock-full of Broadway producers. By playing over 20 characters, Doug and Bud take the audience on a wild, comedic ride they’ll be hard “pressed” to forget.

For more information, or to purchase your tickets for $20/each, visit ensembletheatrecompany.org or call 1-800-838-3006.

With smiles on their faces, Gipson and Ritchea said they are offering free tickets to any Broadway Producers (IMDB or Broadway World verification required) who want to attend.

Gutenberg! The Musical! is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
