Waiting in the Wings: The Musical

Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays

September 18 - 27

presented by the Rose Center Theater, JJ Productions, & Executive Producer Lee Meriwether


Waiting In The Wings: The Musical is based on the 2014 movie of the same title.  The plot-line is centered around two entertainers, destined for the big time, who are mismatched in a casting office from two very different online contests. Tony, a stripper from New York, is accidentally cast in an Off-Broadway musical and needs to trade in his tear-away trunks for tap shoes and tights. Anthony, a naive musical theatre enthusiast from Montana, needs to decide if he can strip all the way down just to stay in town. Hilarity ensues as they realize that "to make it" they're gonna have to learn some new tricks.
