[title of show] is a musical about two nobodies named Hunter and Jeff who decide to write a completely original musical starring themselves and their attractive and talented lady-friends, Susan and Heidi. Their musical, [title of show], gets into the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and becomes a hit. Then it gets an off-Broadway production at the Vineyard Theatre, and wins three Obie Awards! Then (drumroll if you've got a drum) it's announced that their musical is going to Broadway (hooray!) and people start seeing this blurb everywhere! They read that The New York Times called [title of show] "DELECTABLE ENTERTAINMENT! A postmodern homage to the grand tradition of backstage musicals like Babes in Arms, Kiss Me, Kate and A Chorus Line." Fully intrigued, those people snatch up tickets and help make Hunter and Jeff's life-long dream come true!
One day, [title of show] even makes its way to the stages of colleges everywhere, including the stage of Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama where it’s directed by Shannon Hickey, just like Hunter and Jeff!
NOTE: [title of the show] will be performed using adult language.

Talk: “The Storm over ‘The Tempest’ as a Colonial Text” given by Matt Levey, Professor of History & Desireé Melonas, Assistant Professor of Political Science
Imagine a journey to an exotic netherworld of magic, wisdom, and frolicking fools. William Shakespeare’s mystical play The Tempest is a fantastical tale nested on a mysterious island. Here, we meet the powerful Prospero, performed by guest artist Rebecca Yeager, whose sorcery spans boundaries. The iconic enchantress tangos with betrayers, supernatural creatures, love, and redemption.

With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages everywhere. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
BSC Alum Todd Underwood returns to The Hilltop to direct and choreograph Pippin. Most recently at BSC, Todd directed and choreographed Godspell, and choreographed Jesus Christ Superstar.
