Hear from New York City based musical theater songwriting team Sam Carner and Derek Gregor as they share insights about their new musical “Techies”, how they chose Rockford University and its students to take part in developing this brand new musical, the process of creating and workshopping a new musical, and what opportunities it presents to the Rockford University students involved. Carner and Gregor are in residence here through the end of February to bring their musical comedy “Techies” to life. The debut of this new production will run February 21 – 23 in Maddox Theatre, before heading to the Duplex Theater in New York City in March with students from Rockford University. This also presents a unique opportunity for the community to be able to see and participate in a brand new musical production and provide valuable feedback.
“Techies” is described as a fourth-wall shattering pop-rock musical comedy about being weird and fighting for respect in one of the most judgmental places on earth – high school. The show opens on Thursday, February 21 and runs through Saturday, February 23. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Single ticket admission for adults $12, seniors age 55 and up, and students $9 unless otherwise noted. Group rates are available. For tickets, contact the Box Office at 815-226-4100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
