SCAD performance ensemble presents ‘Houdini: the Musical’

Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013

Crites Hall, Mondanaro Theater

Savannah, GA

217 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Join SCAD’s performance ensemble for an evening of magic and song in the group’s first production of the year.

A widely praised show based on the life of iconic magician Harry Houdini, “Houdini: the Musical” is the romantic love story of the man and his wife Bess, set against a backdrop of magic and spiritualism.

The show is presented as part of PE SCORES!, a reading series under the direction of SCAD music director Kevin Wallace. Each reading is produced using minimal costumes and set, with actors holding their scores and scripts, focusing on the words and music.

The series was conceived to present shows that are rarely seen or heard while giving SCAD students broader experience in musical theater literature and period performance styles.

The event is free and open to the public.
