The Wild Party
by Andrew Lippa
SUNY Fredonia, Walter Gloor Mainstage ~ Assistant Director ~ October 22nd - 30th, 2021
This is my newest project! I signed on to the team the week of April 26th. I'll be assisting Jessica Hillman-McCord on her Mainstage production of The Wild Party.
This will mark my first time working on a department Mainstage and also give me the opportunity to work on a dream show. I've been a fan of the piece since my freshman year in high school where I discovered the cast album on Spotify. After I listened through, I discovered the 1928 poem the musical was based on. It was in your face, raunchy, surprising, boundary pushing and full of love (or lack thereof). The show is right in the wheelhouse of theatre I want to be a part of.
On Friday, April 30th, I joined in on my first design meeting. I'm excited for what's to come with the project!
