CLAPTRAPP or The Sound of Musicals -To benefit Emerging Artists Theatre for their 25th anniversary
Written by Joe Godfrey
Directed by Melissa Attebery
Courter Simmons as Maria
Hershey Miller as Mother Superior
Steve Hauck as Captain Georg von Krapp
Elizabeth Bell as Jolie Ta-Ta
Brett Douglas as Klaus Fokker
Amy Bizjak as Tina von Krapp
Vinnie Costa as Artur von Krapp

A benefit reading!! Come join us in Austria as the von Krapps, a lesser known singing family in Sazlburg, negotiate their own hilarious way through the turmoil of pre-WWII, helped by a young governess with a secret of her own.

Inspired by the well-known and beloved musical, CLAPTRAPP presents Captain Georg Von Krapp, his two children, Artur and Tina, his fiancee, the Parisian chanteuse Jolie Ta-Ta, and the new governess, Maria, thrown together amid the turmoil of pre-WWII Austria.

While parodying, to a large degree, the original musical, CLAPTRAPP spins its own convoluted, comedic, and ultimately, gender-bending story. Adding to the humor is one additional treat: Within the play, lyrics of songs from forty-six other American musicals become part of the dialogue.  Those who know their musical comedies will recognize most or all of the references. Approx: 55 minutes running time.

Monday, May 6th, 2019 7pm

Tickets $25 (tax deductible donation)
Includes reception after show with refreshments and treats.

This performance at:
TADA! Theater
15 West 28th St, 2nd floor
