Hasty Pudding’s France France Revolution
February 9 @ 8:00 pm - March 10 @ 5:00 pm
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the oldest theater company in the United States, and each year we put on a spectacular, punny, and entirely student-run drag musical. Our show runs every day but Monday from Friday, February 8 to Sunday, March 10. This year, we are proud to announce that our cast is gender-neutral for the first time ever. For more information on our show, please visit this link and our website.
Vive la France! Paris is in ruins all thanks to Queen REYNA TERROR and her evil regime. When Reyna’s pompous right-hand man and tax collector NEVILLE LETCHAGAURDOWN takes cowardly bovine BELLE ROUNDERNECK, the townspeople are fed up—and this time not by baguettes. We follow the story of star-crossed lovers PHIL AYMIGNON, the town butcher, and sparky Princess THERESA SPARKINME.
Phil leads the townspeople in la révolution with the help of the overly optimistic and somewhat devilish SELMA COOKIES and the brainless but loveable blacksmith BRANDON IRON. As Reyna tries to send her own daughter off to Siberia to be wedded to the boastful Russian Prince EMMANUEL HAFTAMARRY, Theresa will have to choose between standing by her mother and following her heart. Will wacky mime PAUL AYVOUSFRANCES stay loyal to Reyna? Will pirate-parrot duo JACQUES SPARROW and IVY LEEVAYCANFLY ever find the booty they seek? Will DESDEMONA LISA finally meet a man after being stuck inside that darn painting for the last 300 years? We shall Merci in HPT 171: France France Revolution!
