Mousical Gets Six More Performances


The Great American Mousical, directed by Julie Andrews, which began an experimental run yesterday at Goodspeed's Norma Terris Theatre, will run for six additional performances, now closing Dec. 9, 2012.

Below the bright lights of Broadway, in the depths of the historic Sovereign Theatre, an acting troupe of mice rehearse their new musical. When the theatre is threatened by demolition and their diva Adelaide disappears, it will take all paws on deck to fulfill the time-honored tradition: the show must go on!

Filled with singing, dancing, and show biz lore, The Great American Mousical is a sharp and witty tribute to life in the theatre and celebrates the two most glorious words in the English language: musical comedy!

Under the direction of theatre icon Julie Andrews, The Great American Mousical, based on the children's book written by Andrews and her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton, the show features a new score by Zina Goldrich and Lyrics by Marcy Heisler, a book by Tony nominee Hunter Bell and choreography by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli. Sets and costumes will be designed by Oscar, Emmy and Tony-Award winner Tony Walton. Lighting design will be by Richard Pilbrow; sound design will be by Jay Hilton.
