Uptown Players presents When Pigs Fly
Uptown Players will present the musical When Pigs Fly!, conceived by Howard Crabtree and Mark Waldrop, with book and lyrics by Waldrop and music by Dick Gallagher. The show is an updated version of Uptown Players' inaugural 2001 show.
In a hastily booked theater under renovation, Howard struggles to put on a lavish musical revue over numerous obstacles, including the near-mutiny of his cast, and the nagging memory of his high school guidance counselor who told him he'd succeed “when pigs fly.”
Though the spirit of the show is gay - in both senses of the word - When Pigs Fly is completely accessible to anyone who can appreciate being smart and silly at the same time. Just when it seems all is lost, Howard realizes the problem isn't that he's gone too far - it's that he hasn't gone far enough. The show goes on, and all of Howard's fabulously sequined dreams come true.
