TIFTON – Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s ABAC Presents! series will begin with Broadway’s Next Hit Musical on Sept. 26.
This improv-style show presents “The Phony Awards,” where master improvisers gather made-up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, comedy and a ton of laughs! The audience then votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns this Phony Award-winning song into a full-blown, improvised musical — complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, plot twists galore and songs that you will be humming for days.
“This show is an evening of nothing but great fun,” said Wayne Jones, Arts Connection director. “The audience supplies fictitious song titles, the more bizarre, the better, and the cast improvises a musical on the spot from the song titles that are selected. It’s a great evening of music and laughter that should not be missed.”
The ABAC Presents! series showcases professional performing artists selected to support ABAC and area students’ study of the arts and to present high-quality arts experiences to the entire community. All ABAC Presents! performances are held in Howard Auditorium on ABAC’s Main Campus beginning at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:15 p.m.
This performance is followed by The Vega Quartet on Oct. 12. In 2024, pianist Jasmine Arakawa will perform on Feb. 20, a play titled “Keep Marching: The Road to the March on Washington” will be featured on March 7, the Akropolis Reed Quartet performs on April 4, and The Jim Gasior Trio performing will join the ABAC Jazz Ensemble for a performance on April 18.
