Wild Party: An Invitation to Drama
Love, Lust, Drugs, and Guns - A debasing drama of degenerate debauchery.
Wild Party, the upcoming musical production of Penn State Harrisburg's
Capital Players, is one wild night indeed. The story, by Andrew Lippa, is
set around the sexy and voluptuous Queenie, a seductive vaudeville dancer
who can have her way with any man, and does.
Then she meets Burrs, a masterful clown with a dark side and an insa
tiable.appetite who works on the vaudeville scene. Vaudeville was a type
of variety show popular around the 1900's. It was love at first sight and
each had finally found someone capable of slaking their sexual appetites;
but when the lust wears off nothing is left except Burrs' awful temper.
Bruised, battered and despairing, Quennie devises a plan to reignite their
lust, a Wild Party!
A cast of colorful characters are invited including; the flamboyant D'
Armano brothers - Queenie's best friend and fiercest competitor, Kate - a
lesbian - a prize fighter a hooker and a tongueless tap dancer. Everything
is going wonderfully until a new man, Mr. Black, joins the party and im
mediately has his eye on Queenie.
Soon the party members find themselves spectators to a twisted love af
fair that can't end any other way than bad. With a gorgeous cast and crew
stripped to their core this production is sure to captivate audiences and
titillate viewers. Make sure you're invited to the Wild Party April Bth thru
the 11th and 16th thru the 18th.
