Theatre on the Square’s season opener, Ug: The Caveman Musical, opens September 18 and runs through October 17, 2009 in downtown Indianapolis. A recent venue for the indyFringe Theatre Festival, Theatre on the Square has a reputation for entertaining the people of Indianapolis since 1988.
Their season opener brings the story of the first caveman thespian to Indianapolis. Ug and his feisty tribe of Neanderthals are feasting on a tasty dinner of wild boar when he decides to tell one of his many feats of bravery by reenacting the event. “Pretend it isn’t now,” he tells them, “pretend it is then!” Without knowing it, Ug has invented theatre, an entirely new way of telling stories. The tribe all agrees that this thing Ug calls a “play” is so life life and gripping, no one will ever want to have a story told any other way.
This tuneful, hilarious premiere of the origin of theatre stars Indianapolis performing artists Dane Rogers, Erin Cohenour, Evan Wesselman, Sarah Hoffman, Thomas Turner, Doug Messinger, Ian Cruz and William Andrews. Staged by Artistic Director Ron Spencer the show’s upbeat score features musical styles ranging from Boogie Woogie to Elvis and beyond. Ug: The Caveman Musical IS FAMILY FRIENDLY…WITH PG CONTENT, so bring your Indianapolis kids.
